Some incredible designers were picked to save Willamette Falls.
Architects and designers from around the world submitted ideas to revitalize the run-down area. The winning designers created a preliminary design that aims to revitalize the area by creating a space that honors not only the site’s history, but its natural features. “We believe that the site and the history it holds is a sublime, one-of-a-kind landscape that should not be upstaged by the hand of any designer,” said Michelle Delk, Snøhetta’s Director of Landscape Architecture. “We are inspired by the complex strata of the site and its deep cultural history. By protecting, reusing, reducing, and adding, we will integrate and amplify the site’s strata into the Riverwalk.”
