Hatchery Kiosks
A COLLABORATION WITH
ARCHITECT YIANNI DOULIS
These three shelters are part of the Fall Creek Hatchery Research Center's interpretive program. The shelters orient themselves to the views, opening up to welcome visitors walking along the path. The salvaged douglas fir timbers and naturally patinaed copper evoke the colors of the forest and the glint of the creek, while their form abstracts the bones and skin of the salmon swimming just below. Each shelter brings rain to the ground in a different way, creating a sense of delight and surprise. Commissioned by Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife thru the Oregon Arts Commission.
