Bayside Adapts Design Challenge

ALA Summary Board Bayside Adapts
Congratulations to Aceto Landscape Architects -- the winners of the Bayside Adapts Design Challenge!

We received five submissions for the design challenge, all of which presented innovative approaches to making Bayside a resilient neighborhood in the face of rising seas and increasing amounts of stormwater.  The City of Portland sincerely thanks each of the design teams for their work on this project.  All of the designs will inform the Bayside Adapts Working Group, City staff, and community members throughout Bayside Adapts, Phase I, which involves developing a better understanding of the existing infrastructure in the neighborhood and developing guiding principles for future adaptation work.  The inspiring designs demonstrate that Bayside can become an even more vibrant neighborhood if we prepare thoughtfully for future challenges.
