Ed Benedict Skate Plaza

Portland, OR

This distinctly organic design features approximately 16,000 sqft of skateable terrain punctuated by a series green channels, sand filtration planters and two major biofiltration islands for natural onsite treatment of stormwater. The project serves as Portland’s first legitimate plaza based facility and one of the Pacific Northwest’s first ‘green’ skateparks. The design was developed in close collaboration with artists from Portland’s local skate community and features a number of custom sculptural elements, stamp patterns and diverse material combinations. In 2009, the project was profiled in the New York Times for its innovative sustainable design practices.
