The jury appreciated Mayer/Reed’s collaboration with the bridge engineers and architects in achieving a project that is elegant in form and compelling for pedestrians. We are honored to be acknowledged for our contributions to the bridge’s interface with two distinct neighborhoods, as well as our input on the design of the bridge itself. Now, it’s great to see the bridge in active use, with people using it every day, even making the choice to take the stairs!

The ASLA awards program recognizes the best in the landscape architecture of public places, residential designs, campuses, parks and urban planning projects in Oregon.

The Society for Environmental Graphic Design, a global community of people working at the intersection of communication design and the built environment, recognized the team of ZGF Architects interior group and Mayer/Reed with an Honor Award for their collaboration on the environmental graphics and wayfinding for the Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

The jury reviewed submissions from around the world and awarded 17 merit awards, 1 jury award and 4 honor awards.

“Hospitals pose difficult EGD challenges that require rigorous, integrated solutions to communicate orientation information in a welcoming, comforting manner. Engaging, yet remarkably restrained for a children’s hospital, the signage and placemaking programs here reinforce each other to create delight and enhance both wayfinding and well-being.”
