“The Portland-based Oregon Sustainability Center is being developed using the LBC’s doctrine of neither taking resources nor causing environmental harm — this means that the building will produce all of its own water sources and energy…
“Rainwater will be collected for irrigating the many trees and plants that will be incorporated to make the space feel more natural for its fortunate occupants and visitors.”

“Don Eggleston of SERA architects is planting vines on the Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building in Portland, Oregon. He is doing a high-rise version of the green façade technique beloved of Eduoard Francois. Vines and trees are sophisticated climate control devices, blocking the sun during summer and miraculously falling off and allowing the sun to penetrate in winter.”

Here we are on the I-405. I’ve long wanted to snap a shot of the great ivy and other plants they have on this section of the freeway; I love it!
This bridge would be amazing. It would draw visitors from around the world, and be an unparalleled recreation opportunity for those in the Portland/Vancouver area.
