Here is the straight ahead “Summertime” view of the Edith Green Wendell Wyatt Federal Building project here in Portland. This is the image that made it into USA Today, ABC, NBC, CNN, and hundreds of newspapers & blogs around the world.
The design has since changed somewhat with a significant re-do of the living wall so prominent in this view. The “living” portion will only grow to 50-60 feet above grade with green metal fins above to provide shading.
Here are a few interesting links that have the EGWW renderings:
