SE 33rd Avenue & Yamhill Street
Sunnyside Piazza, Phase II
A winding cob wall and information kiosk continues an intersection improvement process that began with a giant sunflower painted by neighbors on the street surface. The cob kiosk will be a place for neighbors to post community-oriented news and events inside a cabinet made of reused wood. A solar-powered cob and stone fountain at the corner will recycle and filter rainwater harvested from the existing house's roof. The water will then dissipate into bioswales containing native plantings.
