BEND, OR -- Several firms are vying for the contract to design the new expanded campus for OSU-Cascades on Bend’s west side. Three firms presented their ideas for how the school should look and feel, during public presentations, Thursday.
They took information from community advisory committees and college officials to create their vision for how the campus might look and feel. Each group took 90 minutes to outline relevant experience and community engagement plans.
"These are teams of architects and engineers and they each presented their approach to developing the long range development plan," Christine Coffin tells KBND News. "So. of course, it included possible approaches to where the buildings are put on the expanded campus, and aspects of sustainability and net-zero energy on the campus."

A selection committee of college officials will make their selection of the campus design team within a few weeks. Coffin says, "The selection team has the hard job of taking the all of the community input that we heard during these presentations and campus community input and selecting the final design team."
