Skylab事务所联手 Studio,在与波特兰公园娱乐中心的紧密合作下,于城市东北部附近创建了这座16英亩的沙漏状公园。设计团队根据一项综合策略来将前Beech公园进行改造,创建了仅需有限维护的被动草甸区域以及高度活跃的项目元素区域。公园附近的社区既有长期居民,也有不断涌入的新居民。具体的项目元素,是通过一系列公共开放住宅和与项目设计顾问小组的会议来与当地居民协调发展的。

Skylab Architecture worked alongside Studio and in close collaboration with Portland Parks and Recreation to create this 16-acre, hourglass-shaped park in a northeast Portland neighborhood. The design team developed the park, formerly Beech Park, around an integrated strategy that creates both passive native meadow areas that require limited maintenance as well as areas for intensively active program elements. The neighborhood is a mix of longterm residents and an increasingly diverse population of new residents. The park’s program elements were developed in coordination with area residents through a series of public open houses and meetings with the project’s Design Advisory Group.

The park’s development introduces a mix of new activities onto the site including a community amphitheater, picnic shelter and restroom, off-leash dog area, a large community playground, interactive water feature, parking areas, walking paths, and community garden. Active uses include a skate spot, climbing wall, basketball, ping pong and soccer. The park’s design takes advantage of views to the Columbia River and distant Mount St. Helens while introducing a strong sense of the area’s native habitat to tie all of the elements of the park together.

The signature element, a 1,760-square-foot multipurpose shelter, is made from a series of interconnected equilateral triangles of perforated and galvanized steel plate. The folded angular form takes its inspiration from the triangulated peaks of the surrounding mountains, Native American plank houses and river fishing platforms. A simple steel pipe frame supports the shelter to create a flexible space for picnic gatherings or summer concerts.

Axial connections through the park enhance user awareness of the world beyond the park. Park program elements and trees are arranged to manipulate view corridors to Mt. Hood and Mount St. Helens and help to organize other site elements including a small steel-clad restroom building. At the highest point on the site a conical mound recalls the volcanic cinder cones on the horizon. Visual connections between key park elements articulate the experience along and across the axis.
