How We Got Here: The Evolution of Portland Planning

April 26, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Untitled Studio x Design Week Portland presents…
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?

FREE with RSVP: https://www.designweekportland.com/events/hq-how-did-we-get-here-investigating-portland-planning-past-and-present

Joe Zehnder, Chief Planner, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability
