This project is part of a small body of work created during an accredited Architecture Studio at Portland State University ]

 

Project Goal:  Redesign and model an existing space to create a new threshold and entrance.

Duration:  7 days

Quick Facts:

  • The original threshold was redesigned as a student bike garage with showers, repair stations, and bike-in ramp access. The entire facility would also be completely ADA accessible.
  • The pavement markings are stylized rumble strips—roughly 1/8-1/4” deep—act as both wayfinding and speed warnings.
