Portland continues to experience rapid population growth & increased development, as well as increased conversation around what that means for the future of our city. These conversations are not without controversy: from the preservation of beloved bridge views to the loss of an iconic food cart pod to the redevelopment of landmark sites, the face of Portland is changing to accommodate our growth. For those of us invested in all aspects of the built environment, what responsibility do we have to our past and how do we balance that history with the need for new construction?
Join SMPS for a lively panel discussion about how we as architects, developers, builders, and engineers can work together with the public and policy makers to help our city reach its full potential while still maintaining the heart & soul of what makes Portland, Portland.
Who should attend? Marketers, principals, and those interested in how the AEC community is honoring the history of Portland, as well as those who have faced dilemmas in design approval, zoning, 2035 plan, etc.
