The Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) Expansion

The Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) Expansion

Austin, Texas

Architect: Joint Venture with Miró Rivera & Tatiana Bilbao, LLC

Owner: City of Austin

Nestled in the Rainey Street Historic District along the picturesque Lady Bird Lake, the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC) stands as a testament to the rich cultural tapestry of Austin, Texas. As the city continues to evolve, so does the MACC, embarking on a transformative journey of expansion and revitalization.

Rogers-O’Brien, in collaboration with visionary architects Tatiana Bilbao and Miró Rivera, is leading the charge to breathe new life into this iconic cultural landmark. Started in August of 2023, the MACC expansion project seeks to seamlessly integrate new facilities and amenities while preserving the architectural integrity of the original design. This 50,000 SF project is set to be completed in the summer of 2025 and will introduce state-of-the-art classrooms, galleries, music rehearsal spaces, and a teaching kitchen.

Beyond its physical transformation, the MACC expansion promises to enhance the visitor experience through thoughtful landscaping and wayfinding improvements. A new circular shade structure will grace the central outdoor plaza, providing a versatile space for community gatherings and ticketed events alike.
