The Architectural Heritage center is hosting a tour in downtown Portland highlighting some of our greatest architects. on August 11th, 2018 from 10am-noon there will be a guided tour in the downtown core.
Information from the Architectural Heritage Center’s website:
The names Pietro Belluschi, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Richard Sundeleaf, and Zimmer Gunsul Frasca, are synonymous with Portland’s growth in the years since the end of the Second World War. Their modernist designs dominated new construction in downtown and forever changed the Portland skyline.
This tour examines the work and legacy of these masters of Portland’s modernist architectural heritage. Along the way you’ll see what many call Portland’s first skyscraper, now quite literally towered over by the nearby US Bancorp Tower. You’ll see banks, office towers, public plazas, and hotels, along with Belluschi’s most important Portland building and a few more recent additions to the city’s skyline.
Space is Limited. Pre-Registration is Required.
$20.00 General Public

About The Architectural Heritage Center
The Architectural Heritage Center’s mission is to “inspire people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places to promote our cultural heritage as a vital element of livable, sustainable, communities.” We seek to preserve the historic character and livability of our built environment, and to promote sustainability through the re-use of period homes and buildings.
Owned and operated by the non-profit Bosco-Milligan Foundation, we empower people in the Portland region to preserve both landmark buildings and the regular “vernacular” vintage homes and storefronts that collectively define our neighborhoods, traditional downtowns,culture, history, and quality of life.
