Futureproofing Development in the OSMI District

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), one of the top-ranked science centers in the United States with over 1 million visitors per year, is about to embark on development of 11 acres of prime riverfront real estate at the base of the Tillikum Bridge and adjacent to the museum. OMSI recently completed a master plan for the OMSI District in partnership with Snohetta. OMSI’s goal is to create a branded campus with private development and the science museum at the center. This workshop asks participants to help OMSI think about how it should “future-proof” development—how should it address parking issues, manage arrivals and departures, integrate walking and biking with AVs, take advantage of technology, and address other opportunities and threats. This workshop will help participants explore how a large, civic venue will need to address changes within significant transportation, environmental (OMSI is on the Willamette River Waterfront), and economic constraints.
