If Pioneer Courthouse Square is Portland’s living room, Director Park is its salon. The European-style piazza built on a half-acre former parking lot is a magnet for chess, conversation and people watching. (KPFF + ZGF Project)


Sustainable Features:

  • Curbless festival streets allow the plaza to extend from building front to building front for events.

  • Stormwater planters treat runoff from the glass canopy.

  • Stormwater from the curbless streets flow into terraced stormwater planters, where it is filtered.

  • Interactive fountain treats and reuses water.
