“Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent — a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy.”
In 1937, Franklin Roosevelt dedicated the lodge as a “testament to the workers on the rolls of the Works Progress Administration.” Fast forward to the end of 2011 and you arrive at Timberline Lodge’s 75th anniversary. To celebrate, we worked with the team at Timberline to create an interactive heritage experience, built to educate on the beginnings of the lodge, the disrepair, the rebirth… all the way to the present day. Using photos, videos and stories from the past 75 years, we added a bit of playful parallax-tastic interactiveness to the piece (especially if you use the scrollbar at the bottom of the site/browser window), letting people travel through time and space to further understand why the lodge is so special. Experience it for yourself at:
We’re incredibly fortunate to have Timberline Lodge as a client, and the opportunity to take advantage of the lodge and Mt. Hood being 90 minutes from Portland. So happy 75th Anniversary, Timberline Lodge! Can’t wait to celebrate in person with some fresh turns this winter.
