As Design Week PDX (DWP) gets ready to kick off this weekend, we’re busy prepping all the goodies for our Green Loop displays, interactive exhibits and discussions. This concept for a six-mile linear park around Portland’s urban core is the star attraction of DWP, starting with the opening night party on Saturday evening.
The loop is the brainchild of our Urban Design Studio and part of the Central City 2035 plan (a “Big Idea”). Last year, the University of Oregon/Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape held a design competition called Loop PDX, which invited designers to flesh out the circular open space concept. Untitled Studios, a group of young designers, won the $20,000 prize and has spent the past year refining and expanding the concept based on a lot of public outreach.
They will be sharing their latest work at DWP Headquarters at The Redd all next week.
