2014 Festival of Flowers

SONY DSC

 

“A-maze-ing” designed by DAO Architecture opens to the public on May 30th. This two-week Festival of Flowers installation inspired by Pioneer Courthouse Square’s 30th birthday will transform the Square into a colorful interactive maze of nearly 20,000 begonias, marigolds, impatiens and more. The celebration will continue along the downtown transit mall celebrating Portland Mall Management, Inc.’s fifth birthday with a series of floral designs at the Congress Center and Unitus Plaza. The designs will remain throughout downtown until June 10th. To view a rendering of the design, click here.
