above. Spare, but vibrant. Public and private. Having an energy of its own. To meet these criteria, we look to the past for guidance. Our building is vernacular in its form and materiality. It is spare; that its, window penetrations are punctured into a brick and board-formed concrete massing without adornment. Its major flourishes come where the building meets the sky. There, its mass gives way to great civic festivity. As the city of Portland grows more dense, its private buildings will need to become part of the public life of the city. At 1425, we suggest a public roof deck crowned with that great symbol of American amusement, a carousel. Of course the carousel is just that, a symbol – of the civic responsibility a building on this site has to the city of Portland.
