Sleeping Pod Initiative

No one can deny that Hennebery Eddy design staff member John Maternoski is involved in Portland’s architecture community. A 2014 graduate of the University of Oregon, John has worked with Habitat for Humanity, the AIA, and the Construction Specifications Institute. In Portland alone, he is on the board of directors of the Center for Architecture, he co-chairs the AIA Portland Emerging Professionals Committee, is a member of the Architecture Foundation of Oregon and Design Museum Portland, and volunteers with other organizations around the city. In fact, he’s so involved that he started the Portland Design Events website to help the community keep track of it all. “I’ve volunteered a lot for the architecture profession,” says John, “but I hadn’t spent as much time using my architecture skills for those outside the industry.”

This fall, the City of Portland Mayor’s Office, the Center for Public Interest Design (CIPD) at Portland State University, the Village Coalition (a group of advocates, activists, and houseless individuals committed to combatting homelessness), City Repair, Communitecture, and Open Architecture Collaborative formed the Partners on Dwelling (POD) initiative and invited the design community to design and build small, beautiful and safe dwellings. The completed pods would be displayed in downtown Portland and then used this winter at Hazelnut Grove, a houseless village in North Portland. John joined his friends Julia Mollner and Nada Maani to form a team, giving them all an opportunity to put their skills to use with an immediate, tangible outcome.

Construction for the second academic building on Clackamas Community College’s Harmony campus broke ground this fall, bringing the institution a step closer to creating a community-centric campus. Hennebery Eddy worked closely with the College to design a new academic building anchored in community and student experience. The accessible site fosters relationship to the broader community, including the Three-Creeks Natural Area; the building will streamline the student experience by creating a centralized hub for health science programs.

PDX Green Loop Competition

Last spring, Hennebery Eddy participated in the PDX Green Loop Competition, an opportunity presented by the University of Oregon John Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape in collaboration with Design Week Portland and the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. Described as “a 21st century public works project for Portland,” the call for designs asked for six-mile “linear park” solutions connecting the east and west sides of the Willamette River. In collaboration with DHM Design, CH2M and Tad Savinar, our fascination with the concept of reconnecting with the land to explore the interconnectedness of circulation and recreation, and sustainability and sustenance into one byway serving the entire city propelled us to finalist status in the competition.
