HOW WE GOT HERE: THE EVOLUTION OF PORTLAND PLANNING
Portland has an international reputation for its progressive urban planning, but these bold visions – and the city’s recent explosive growth – are not without their costs. At a critical moment in Portland’s history, we investigate the city’s greatest successes as well as its notable failings. Come join a panel of scholars, curators, and architects, as we debate Portland’s recent past from the ’80s with an eye toward the future, seeking answers to the questions: where have we been, and how did we get here?
