SXSW Eco is taking over Brush Square Park with art and design installations and special programming October 9 through 12. 
 
The Place by Design Outdoor Lounge at Brush Square Park will transform one of Austin's original downtown squares into a place of pop-up discovery, experimentation and fun. For the three days of SXSW Eco, artists and designers have to been invited to reimagine this historic green space.
