We are excited to announce that TMC Helix Park has won Core77s 2024 Built Environment Award and was named Runner Up in the Sustainability category! This recognition underscores our dedication to innovation and sustainability in design. TMC Helix Park celebrates human and ecological resilience. At 14.5 acres in downtown Houston, TMC Helix Park addresses urgent environmental needs, weaving together stormwater management with biodiverse planting at the center of world’s largest medical campus. The park redefines ecological resilience on the urban scale, transforming a series of hardscaped asphalt parking lots into a strategically vegetated neighbourhood park. To plan for the 500-year storm, the park was conceived of as a living sponge that stores, filters, and repurposes rainwater for the entire watershed. The park’s permeable open space is designed for rainfall interception, with over 650 new trees, allowing the site’s living infrastructure to retain up to 3.2-million-gallons of stormwater.
