Situated along the South Waterfront and next to the base of the OHSU tram, Block 119 was a look into the feasibility of a large apartment building taking advantage of the new medical community and the South Waterfront development effort. A composite of reflective and opaque surfaces, the building pushes into the sky in a heterogeneous manner, at times meant to almost dissappear into the clouds of Portland.
