One of the world’s best-known historic icons has recently undergone an extensive planning effort to restore reverence and dignity to the site. The Master Interpretive Plan, lead by a team of PGAV Destinations along with Cultural Innovations and Reed Hilderbrand, will transform the site into an historic and cultural destination that lives up to the fame.
The plan includes closing streets to create a pedestrian-friendly outdoor museum with extensive interpretation of the many layers of history found at the site. A new world-class museum will house collections and include state-of-the-art museum experiences. Interpretation will be based on primary sources and evidence but will also acknowledge perceptions in popular culture. The approved Alamo plan outlines one of the largest history projects in the country and is now advancing into design. The session will consist of an overview of the planning process, including the public-private partnership, extensive public engagement, and design strategies.
