Portland Provocations: Architectural Visions for the City

The city of Portland has been narrativized and caricatured in popular culture to a degree enjoyed only by larger metropolitan American cities. However, this reasonable metropolis has forged an unlikely alliance with emergent technologies and progressive policies that have helped shape it as a space for provocative architectural interventions. Portland Provocations is a cross-section of architectural projects at Portland State University's School of Architecture that engage with the nuanced complexities and projective ambitions of the city. In hopes of reshaping the discourse on architecture, ecology, and humanity further in the city, one project at a time, Portland Provocations will exhibit a collection of projects and will be linked with a public discussion about engaging the city in unique and novel ways.
