The Daily Journal of Commerce Oregon honored Mayer/Reed with the award for Landscape Architecture Firm of the Year during the 2018 DJC Newsmakers Awards event in Portland, Oregon.

The Portland Winter Light Festival is on! In its third year, the illuminated displays and performances have expanded to infuse light, color, and imagination into several locations around the city. As a “Dazzling Sponsor,” Mayer/Reed helped the festival strategize how to communicate that events reach from Cathedral Park to OMSI and created festival maps to show locations of the activity hubs. The Portland Winter Light Festival is free and open to everyone February 1-3, so get out and add some sparkle to your night.

The grand opening for a modernized, state-of-the-art Franklin High School on Saturday September 2nd welcomed alumni, families, faculty, Portland Public Schools officials, along with the design and construction teams. It was clear that the school remains a landmark of its southeast neighborhood and offers fond memories to returning alumni from classes as far back as the 1930s.The campus and renovated building have been transformed by the hard work of many dedicated individuals in order to serve future generations. Along with Portland Public Schools and its faculty and students, we at Mayer/Reed share the overwhelming sentiments of pride and optimism for the learning, social and athletic opportunities now possible at Franklin High School. We are truly pleased to have served a significant role in the success of the project.
