Oregon Convention Center

  • Location: Portland, OR
  • Designer: Mayer Reed
  • Client: City of Portland
  • Last Updated: Feb 4 2007

The rainwater design at the Oregon Convention Center is a river abstraction that follows the building edge to convey runoff from the Center's 5-acre roof, while the design coyly entices the adventuresome to engage in the "river" experience.This linear water trail is separated from a nearby sidewalk by a luxuriant clipped lawn, and is even more clearly made separate by a border of thick plantings and rocks along its lawn edge; but at certain points the border opens, and a flat rock laid flush with the lawn beckons visitors to enter the "river" at one of the weirs.Once in, the adventuresome may clamber across the rocks, while others may choose to simply sit on one of the rock weirs and enjoy the lush surroundings.

Tanner Springs Park

  • Location: Portland, OR
  • Designer: Dreiseitl, GreenWorks
  • Client: Portland Parks and Recreation
  • Last Updated: Feb 4 2007

GreenWorks collaborated with Atelier Dreiseitl of Germany to design an urban park in Portland's Pearl District. Envisioned as an urban park with a wetland focus, the park serves many residents in the newly developing Pearl District neighborhood. The design features innovative uses of water and stormwater, creating a refuge for people and wildlife in the midst of this bustling downtown neighborhood. The design process was highly interactive and involved the citizens of Portland through a series of interactive public workshops. (from GreenWorks)
