Mountain View is a unique community bound by the Bosque and rich history of industry, agriculture, urban settlement and dispute. The boundary along 2nd Street marks the division within the community and its sense of place. It also marks a challenge to rethink the parameters of economy, ecology and welfare and reconcile the disparities between them. Our assignment was simple. Redesign 2nd Street. But along the way we realized that Mountain View holds much more meaning and purpose. This neighborhood has the potential to face its challenges through innovative, elegant design and serve as an example of a beautiful reconciliation. The master plan and specific site designs presented in this book are just the beginning.
