The designers, led by SEGD Portland Chapter, created temporary installations along the Portland Open Space Sequence, designed by Lawrence Halprin and built between 1966 and 1970.“Sometimes we forget what we have until someone shines a light on it. More of this kind of collaboration, please!” Juror comment
