LAM makes it clear that a brick is a beautiful thing in an article this month featuring Oregon Shakespeare Festival, “The Bricks.” Oregon Shakespeare Festival is a cultural hub and the Bricks is its heart: a half-acre space connecting two adjacent theaters, the OSF offices, and the Thomas Theater across the street. The Bricks redevelopment encompassed the entire central plaza and included regrading of the site, new hardscape, amphitheater steps and green, plantings, a new stage and canopy, and modifications to theater entries. A driving consideration for the design was the theatricality of the landscape itself. The theater is a place where performers bring stories to life, so this landscape is dramatic in its own storytelling and serves as a stage for cutting-edge performing arts.
