BASE is thrilled to announce that The Redd on Salmon Street has won first prize at the 2015 SXSW Eco Conference! As the landscape architects on the project, we are proud to be among the innovators driving economic, environmental, and social change. Congratulations to Ecotrust and the the stellar teams at Opsis Architecture, and all the other collaborators on this project. Please follow the links to read more about this unique venture and see the inspiring work of all the finalists.
And for those in the Portland region, please join us on October 23rd from 4-9pm at The Redd campus on SE9th and Salmon for the Mill & Grill party. In addition to live music and wild sockeye salmon barbecue by Iliamna Fish Co., there will be beer from Rogue Brewery, pumpkin carving, and soda by Hot Lips Pizza. But best of all, there will be an on-site demonstration of cedar log and lumber milling by Coquille Indian Tribe members, who are bringing the logs from their Sek-wet-se forest to serve as beams and siding in rebuilding the Redd Foundry building.
