Vancouver-based GBL Architects have taken second place in Portland’s AIA annual international design competition, entitled Stitch II.

GBL have named their scheme “Entwine” to describe their efforts to adapt and reappropriate existing marginalized sites within city centres, in the context of limited expansion opportunities within our increasingly densifying urban cores. The linear arrangement of vacant lots below the 405 bridge in downtown Portland present a series of impermeable spaces that in their existing state contribute little to the connection between the adjacent Alphabet Neighbourhood and Pearl District.
