“The fact that we could have a conversation is part of what the Confluence Project stands for,” she says. “Sometimes it is not the physical building that counts. It’s about the ideas, dialogue and discussion that has taken place.”

The Confluence Project will weave the stories of the Native American tribes along the Columbia River with information from the journals of Lewis and Clark two centuries ago.

Lin is best known for designing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC
