Architalx Franklin Street Redesigns

In April of 2007 Architalx held a design competition to provoke a visual discussion of redesign possibilities of various sites on the Portland peninsula. This competition, titled “Lost Sites” allowed design professionals and others in the community to envision alternatives to the rifts in Portland’s rich urban fabric. A majority of the submissions focused on Franklin Arterial.
