PORTFOLIO ▲ F or a university building meant to encourage interaction and collaboration among science disciplines, the architects-CO Architects, Los Angeles, and SERA Architects, Portland, OR-created a series of suspended crisscrossing walkways throughout a glass atrium at the Collaborative Life Sciences Building and Skourtes Tower in Portland. The project was a joint project between Oregon Health & Science Univ., Portland State Univ., and Oregon State Univ. Literally bridging gaps between disciplines, the walkways enable efficient circulation and allow critical casual conversation and collaboration on landings equipped with seating areas. They also became a canvas for public art by Pae White, who used LED contour lighting tubes to create her piece, "Fauxcilitator." Based on the Kelvin scale of light temperature-and considering Portland's scant yearly average of 68 days of sunshine-the installation emits warm and cool tones throughout the day.
