Recently completed rendering of the proposed Marine Studies Initiative Center expansion on the Newport campus of Oregon State University. The project features an unusual "vertical evacuation zone", one of the first of its kind in the United States. The rendering highlights the entrance to the ramp, encouraging students up to the occupiable roof at the top of the building. OSU orange school colors are used throughout in the entourage. Native dune grasses & pine trees reinforce its coastal setting including a glimpse of the Yaquina Bay Bridge in the distance, a well-known landmark along the Oregon Coast.
