Placemaking for an art, art history, and design school’s new home

  • Wayfinding

Collaborators: LEVER Architecture | Expected completion 2025


We’re working on signage and wayfinding and collaborative placemaking for Portland State University’s School of Art + Design’s new home designed by LEVER Architecture. The new mass timber building will centralize design, art, and art history classes in a welcoming and uplifting space for students to call their own.

“Located along the South Park Blocks between College and Jackson streets, the approximately 80,000-foot structure will include collaborative spaces, classrooms, studios for sculpture, printmaking, textile arts, photography and videography, critique spaces, graphic design labs, Art History teaching spaces and offices. The new home for the art school will create a central, welcoming space for all students and faculty, who currently operate in several separate locations across campus.”
