A Riverine Environment
February 10, 2017
As a west-side compliment to the High Desert Museum, this newly revised scheme celebrates water as a character-defining element. Where High Desert responds to a dry, relatively sere environment, the River Museum will respond to water past, present and future. Its flora and fauna riverine palette will be rich with seasonal colors. The walkways between parking and museum, and across the site, will be moist and green, redolent of the Western Cascades forest and its wetlands. The environment will say “river watershed” to its visitors.
