    AMERICAN LANDSCAPE AWARDS

    When it originally opened in 1978, the Portland Transit Mall created a transit-focused corridor in downtown Portland, Oregon. For a distance of 11 blocks through the commercial core, a pair of one-way streets combined dedicated bus lanes and limited car traffic with wide brick sidewalks and an abundance of trees, benches, and shelters. But despite being an icon for progressive urban planning, the mall suffered deferred maintenance and deterioration over time. — Published 2011.1102

    LEED-EB O&M AT THE ROSE GARDEN ARENA

    In the last few years, fans of the Portland Trail Blazers may have noticed some changes to the Rose Garden arena, the basketball team's home court in Portland, Oregon. The white roof may look a bit brighter, after cleaning to improve solar reflectivity.

    Inside, conventional trash cans have been replaced by 300 receptacles for enhanced recycling and compost disposal. Outside, bicycle racks have proliferated, now accommodating 100 additional bikes. — Published 2011.1026

    PORTLAND AIA AWARDS

    When the University of Oregon made plans with longtime athletics benefactor Phil Knight, chairman of Nike, to build a new study center for student athletes on the Eugene campus, the stated goal was to create a building of striking beauty that celebrates the landscape. The resulting John E. Jaqua Academic Center for Student Athletes is a gleaming glass cuboid set against a reflecting pool, impressing passersby with its pristine presence while providing abundant outdoor views to the select athletes within. — Published 2010.1110

    HEADING FOR NET-ZERO

    Some projects come along at pivotal moments. Such was the case for the Rose House in Portland, Oregon, a compact home that served as a laboratory for energy-efficient residential design in 2004, and ended up setting the bar as the first house in the state designed to achieve zero net energy use. — Published 2010.0421

    POSTCARD FROM PORTLAND

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    If you visited Portland, Oregon's Saturday Market prior to 2009, then you might remember a collection of vendor stalls arranged under the concrete approach ramp of the Burnside Bridge, spilling out to the south, wrapping around a ponderous and slightly run-down brick building, and continuing toward the historic Skidmore Fountain. And if you visit that site today, you'll notice things have changed. — Published 2009.1216

    PRESERVATION IN PORTLAND

    The recent threat of demolition to Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, one of the city's most visible architectural landmarks, galvanized local architects and historic preservation advocates. But the city's record on historic preservation, in terms of both involvement and actually preserving buildings, is spotty. — Published 2009.0729

    MEMORIAL COLISEUM - PORTLAND, OREGON

    The perimeter of Memorial Coliseum bounds the equivalent area of four city blocks in Portland, Oregon, yet the entire envelope of the building, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, stands on just four columns. — Published 2009.0708

    AIA PORTLAND DESIGN AWARDS 2007

    Portland, Oregon, has traditionally kept a low architectural style profile compared to other West Coast cities of the United States, such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, with their array of landmarks by star architects.

    But this river city is becoming a hot commodity. Numerous publications have christened Portland as America's greenest city. There are more LEED-registered building projects in Portland than any other city in the country. — Published 2008.0507

    LEED GOLD RESURRECTION

    To visit the RiverEast Center in Portland, Oregon, is to stand at a major crossroads. The newly renovated former warehouse building sits along the Willamette River, just across from downtown, at the base of the Hawthorne Bridge. This location affords unobstructed views of boats and cars streaming by in the foreground with the classic downtown Portland skyline behind. The RiverEast Center also sits beside a massive freeway bridge and overpass to the west and a railroad track busy with freight and occasional passenger trains to the east. — Published 2008.0109

    8NW8 IN PORTLAND'S PEARL

    The ideals are familiar to any architect working in a big city: a project should be well designed, well built, and well integrated into its urban environment. And yet we have too few U.S. examples to follow when it comes to applying these principles to housing for the poor. — Published 2007.0307
