Snøhetta has unveiled plans to build the first official market building in Portland, Oregon, for over 70 years. The architecture and design studio – which has offices in New York and Oslo – will lead the design team for the community-funded James Beard Public Market, a new year-round food market for the American city.

It will be Portland’s first permanent market since 1942, when the Portland Public Market closed down. Portland has a celebrated restaurant and street food scene, which is supported by a number of farmers’  markets, local breweries, and farms run by families and collectives in the surrounding area..
