About Fortlandia
The Wildflower Center presents Fortlandia, a collection of unique forts by local architecture and design firms, individual artists, and students from The University of Texas at Austin.
Each fort has been custom-built to evoke memories of childhoods spent escaping into nature and daydreaming outdoors. Delight in these innovative spaces as they transport you to fantastic imaginary worlds and inspire an appreciation for art and nature — and the curious, wonderful ways in which they intersect.
Open from October 2018 – February 2019 in the Wildflower Center’s Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. Entry is included with regular admission; admission is always free for members.
