To clarify, the two buildings on this tour that were designed by GBD were 200 Market and the new OHSU Center for Health and Healing. I believe Epler Hall was designed by Mithun architects.


How is 200 Market LEED certified now? Just curious. Being a student, I don't have 55 clams to shell out for a tour. =)

Thanks A.E. V, I've made the corrections.


OHSU - CHH is actually the largest LEED Platinum building in the country. It is also by far one of the most complex. It certainly contributes to the developing skyline. Not having been through the process i would think that gaining LEED Gold for an existing building must be pretty exhausting. I believe that if there are things that pre-exist, then they can count and help that pursuit. This building actually has a green roof since the late 70's. I personally like that building very much. Has a pure SOM quality to the details, and in the form. Besides every city needs a black box.
