Design|Spring Charrette

The emerging professionals group, Design|Spring, is organizing its first design charrette! The event will bring together design professionals and active citizens to generate ideas for enhancing building facades and the corresponding streetscape in downtown Springfield, Oregon.

The target area is Main Street between Pioneer Parkway West and 8th Street in downtown. Teams will consider the existing conditions, the historic character of the street, and the goals of active community members. A possible outcome of the charrette might be specific design suggestions that Main Street merchants will find actionable and cost-effective.

Design|Spring encourages you to participate! The group will issue final details for the charrette soon, including facts and graphics related to Main Street.

To help the organizers better coordinate the event they ask that participants RSVP in advance. Please email if you’re interested in taking part.

What: Design|Spring Charrette for Springfield

When: Saturday, November 12 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Where: Springfield Academy of Arts & Academics, 615 Main Street, Springfield, OR
