“Fans who venture out to the Pickathon Music Festival in Portland to see Ty Segall on Sunday night—or any of the other acts on the Treeline Stage over the weekend—are bound to notice the distinctive backdrop. The stage is a perforated pavilion comprised of nearly 700 wooden gable trusses.”

Throughout the past five years Pickathon has had an incredibly successful partnership with the PSU School or Architecture. Once again we’re reminded that the students, led by professor Travis Bell and director Clive Knights, are the real stars here… Working through an entire semester of design, build, then repurpose – this years Treeline Stage will have life well beyond the festival itself. What looked, sounded, and felt great during the weekend is now being reused as part of a new sleeping pod transitional village for houseless veterans.
