The Museum At Warm Springs is many things, not least of which is a striking piece of architecture, a 25,000-square-foot structure that packs an emotional wallop all too seldom felt in modern architecture.
The Museum is designed to resemble an encampment along the cottonwood trees next to Shitike Creek in the Deschutes River Canyon.
The materials used in the building's construction are in harmony with the natural surroundings and the traditions of the Confederated Tribes. Native Stone, heavy timber and brick are all finely detailed to demonstrate the integration of art into everyday life.
Symbols that have great meaning for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, such as the longhouse, Tipi, drum, dance costume bustles and patterns from a Klickitat Basket.
