Description

 

This tour explores the northern portion of downtown where you’ll look at Portland skyscrapers – from the oldest to the near-tallest and most recent. The fingerprints of iconic architect Pietro Belluschi are on five buildings on this tour including, perhaps, his most famous of all. Other stops include the work of modern masters Richard Sundeleaf, Skidmore Owings & Merrill, and Zimmer Gunsul Frasca. We'll also look at three "modern" public plazas and try to figure out reasons for success or failure of those designs.

 

Space is Limited.

 

Pre-Registration is Required.
