More Information:  THE EXHIBITION & THE CONCEPT: THE PORTLAND MOSAIC 

This year, Design Week Portland Headquarters (DWPHQ) will bring to life a design concept for the Green Loop, a new linear park and bike promenade linking the city’s east and west sides. Reimagining the design process as a public celebration, Untitled Studio, the winners of the LoopPDX competition, in close coordination with city bureaus, will host a week long exhibition that invites the community to come together to learn, react, discuss, and further envision the project’s potential. Intended to help define the identity and character of the project, the exhibition will provide opportunities to experience and engage with the concept through creative programming, a streetscape prototype, and large-scale interactive map. Headquarters will also act as the festival’s information hub and living room - creating a neighborhood gathering space for participants to plan their itineraries and share their experiences. Bring your insights, curiosity, and imagination and join the conversation.
