NADAAA and Reed Hilderbrand will design Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s Turkey Bend

Buffalo Bayou’s East Sector was once the city’s powerful manufacturing center and connection to the Ship Channel. An inlet from the bayou, Turkey Bend, contains some of Houston’s iconic industrial relics. Buffalo Bayou Partnership identified a team of NADAAA and Reed Hilderbrand to reimagine Turkey Bend as a park space and community cultural center. The project will include the adaptation of a warehouse building, the conversion of a wharf building into an events space, as well as the metamorphosis of the water’s edge and the steeply sloping interstitial spaces of the site that connect to the Bayou’s trails.

This collaboration with the Partnership continues and extends our work on four gardens within the first phase of the Buffalo Bayou Park, completed in 2016.
