Cool Summers?

Here in Portland we’ve had a pretty cool summer. Cool in all ways! Besides the chilly evenings and great sleeping weather, there have been some terrific events going on.

But first I want to share this photo collection posted by Brian Libby on the blog ‘Portland Architecture’…

The AIA Center for Architecture has sponsered a few really interesting panels and presentations. I attended one on the design of photovoltaic solar panels, another on design competitions and how they are run, and another on mid-century modern architecture here in Portland.

Many of these events are open to the public. You can always enjoy the exhibits in the Center for Architecture Space located at 11th and Flanders in NW [the Pearl].
