Exhibit Hanging letters throughout a museum dedicated to those written during war at eye level encourages readers to interact with them the same way the writer did while on the battlefield. This provides the personal experience that the writer had to those who read the letter.

Design Statement With traditional steel plate-bolt connections and 10-foot spacing, I am able to maximize the verticality of the truss and create a slippery slope to reduce snow load.
Aesthetic and Engineering La Montagne Construite (The Built Mountain) has large painted black steel plates mimic wood fire behind an iron rod screen.
Connections They are over expressed to because they are a larger part of the design than just minimal pieces.

Vision The park blocks of Portland is a river of trees bounded by buildings of oregonâ€™s culture.
The new Oregon Historical Society (the LoOM) building
will bound a tributary along the bank. Supports for the
exterior walls grow along the edge of the new tributary and support a library and museum that looms over the courtyard. Materiality that blends wood with steel and glass creates the distinctive northwest style.
