The Plaza de Fundación, San Antonio, TX
Phase 1.1 | San Pedro Creek Culture Park, San Antonio, TX.
Grand Opening May 5, 2018
16 Original cement tile designs installed on park benches along the The Plaza de Fundación segment of the park.
Menchaca created 16 unique tile patterns that represent various themes related to the story of San Pedro Creek. Based on Mexican Talavera tiles, the bold graphics and color palettes encompass the diverse cultures that make up San Antonio’s dynamic history. One of the patterns, titled “crossroads,” represents the multitudes of people coming together in San Antonio as a crossroads in time and space. Another, titled “generations,” used in the Plaza de Fundación, marks the twelve generations that have contributed to the community since its founding in 1718.
