facilities, business incubation and public access to the riverfront. Sited along the Willamette River, just north of downtown Portland, the form is inspired by the undulating waves of the water and the desire to create semi-enclosed outdoor space that celebrates the river. Capitalizing on its adjacencies to both industry and ecology, the institute’s research focus is the development of sustainable industrial materials and processes based on ecological and natural systems principles.

are oriented towards the river to maximize views and encourage collaboration and informal interactions. Private offices are buffered from the more social oriented spaces through a service spine, containing utilities, meeting rooms and essential services. A cantilevered green roof blends the structure with the site’s natural surroundings and provides covered access to the outdoors during inclement weather.

Gresham City Hall DAYLIGHT

Winter Studio 2010 with Jeff Knighton and Chris Nielson Part of the U of O’s Sustainable Cities Initiative, the proposal is one of several presented to the city of Gresham for a new City Hall. The design addresses sustainability and planning issues at the urban, site and building scale. The suburban block is broken up and scaled down to increase development density and walkability. The building footprint is minimized to make room for a public plaza, creating an inviting space for social, civic, and community activities. The central atrium and ground floor council chambers provide both formal and informal opportunities for

TRANSPARENCY

the public to interact with city workers. Accessible outdoor space is integrated into each floor with the green roof garden simultaneously providing a place for retreat and stormwater mitigation. The width of the building wings is reduced to maximize daylight access. Each facade is customized according to solar orientation and the integration of passive ventilation.
