Cottonwood Canyon Experience Center
by Signal Architecture + Research

Signal Architecture + Research

Cottonwood Canyon Experience Center has been positioned to shield outdoor gathering spaces from heavy winds and afternoon sun.

The building features shaded outdoor spaces, windbreaks, wood stove hearth and walkways connecting to campsites.

The durable structure complements the historic barns that dot the meadows along the John Day River.

Interior spaces are configured to allow for maximum adaptability. Approaching the building at night, visitors will notice a unique ribbon of light emanating from the building.


This project has been longlisted in the cultural building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
