The Green Loop SWPDX project was conducted by five students in partnership with the Portland Bureau of Planning & Sustainability Urban Design Studio and Portland State University's Campus Planning Office. It explores potential alignments and design treatments for Portland's Green Loop, specifically with the southwest downtown quardrant of the Central City. The southwest quadrant of the Green Loop links the South Park Blocks to the non-automobile Tilikum Crossing bridge. The Green Loop SWPDX project explores both large and small-scale possibilities for creating a sense of safety and a place for cyclists and pedestrians in the Central City. This document reports on the results of a variety of research and makes recommendations for the alignment of the Green Loop and how it might be designed in ways that respect the distinct characteristics of its various segments.
This project was conducted under the supervision of Sy Adler Marisa Zapata and Susan Harnett.
