If you’re like many of us, you can’t wait to travel again and flying into and out of Portland International Airport is about to be even more exciting. Renderings from our friends at ZGF Architects  show an amazing transformation on the horizon for the Main Terminal, scheduled for completion in 2025. PDX NEXT says that the design is "inspired by the forests of the Pacific Northwest and the feeling you get while walking through the woods, the experience of light filtering through the trees, and the protection of the canopy."  Sounds pretty dreamy for an airport experience.

The space will be crafted using local, sustainably harvested lumber, much of which can be traced back to the forest of origin. Small, family-owned mills, Pacific Northwest tribes and other local landowners are supplying forest products for the new space.

Sustainable Northwest Wood is a proud partner on this project and is playing a crucial role in connecting land owners, sourcing and procuring many of the wood products going into this dramatic transformation. We LOVE PDX now but can’t wait to see PDX Next!
