Join Mayer/Reed and SRG Partnership for a Dine & Design event on the 6th floor terrace of the OHSU Knight Cancer Research Building. The August 18 event is part of the Architecture Foundation of Oregon’s (AFO) series that brings people together to experience exceptional designed spaces. Dine & Design raises money to support AFO’s programs, including Architects in Schools.
The Mayer/Reed-designed outdoor terrace of the LEED platinum, state-of-the-art building in Portland’s South Waterfront District extends the social gathering space of the building’s adjacent “intellectual lounge” and captures stunning views to the east. You won’t want to miss this dinner with a view!
We look forward to sharing the design story, amazing views, good food and camaraderie with colleagues and design enthusiasts. Visit afo-oregon.org for more information.
Join us in the South Park Blocks for music, art, food vendors, performances, family activities and more. Paseo is a free event inspired by strolls through the streets of Spain and is conceived and curated by a committee of BIPOC social justice and arts leaders. See you in the park!
Next week join Mayer/Reed at the SEGD 2022 Conference in Portland where we’ll share our work and the value of collaboration, inclusive process and design rigor with the experiential graphic design community.
Context of Design PDX+SEGD – The conference will kick-off with event chairs—Kathy Fry, SEGD President, Mayer/Reed Principal; Alper Yurtseven, Mayer/Reed Senior Designer; and Traci Sym, SEGD Vice-President, Plus & Greater Than—presenting a local look at wayfinding, digital, exhibition, brand, interior and placemaking.
PDXNext Tour – Mayer/Reed Associate Bryan Stevens and Senior Designer Alper Yurtseven, along with Irene Ng (Port of Portland) and Dan Meeker (HOK), will lead a tour of the transformative Portland International Airport expansion and share the Signage and Wayfinding Master Plan development and implementation. Mayer/Reed is leading the signage and wayfinding implementation design throughout the PDXNext projects.
Columbia River GorgeTour – Mayer/Reed Associate Debbie Shaw, along with Renee Tkach (Friends of the Columbia River Gorge), will lead a tour of the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. Amidst breathtaking waterfalls and viewpoints, they’ll discuss interpretation, education and wayfinding projects that ensure the Gorge remains wondrous, wild and open to all. Mayer/Reed’s work includes the Vista House, Towns to Trails, Columbia River Gorge Historic Highway Trail signage, Travel Oregon Bike Hubs and an accessible trails project.
TriMet TransitTour – Mayer/Reed Senior Designer Rob Wente will lead a tour of the MAX light rail system and new BRT bus line with Jesse Stemmler and Fiona Lyon of TriMet. They’ll explore the TriMet brand, station design, wayfinding, art and integration of bike friendly design. Mayer/Reed’s work includes the Portland Transit Mall, Orange Line, Division Street Transit and the Tilikum Crossing.
Exciting changes are underway at Errol Heights Park in Southeast Portland, where neighbors are seeing beginnings of the design they’ve helped shape. Construction crews are preparing the site for improvements that will occur over the next year. Mayer/Reed worked with Portland Parks & Recreation and the neighborhood on a design for the 16-acre park that will provide trails for barrier-free access, inclusive play opportunities, community gardens and picnic areas on the upper plateau. The park’s lower natural areas and pond—locally known for wildlife habitat—will be protected and a new outdoor classroom will welcome school groups.
This Saturday, the community is invited to a meet and greet event at the park to learn more about the work ahead. The improved Errol Heights Park is planned for completion in 2023.
