Portland Design & Architecture Festival2011 Portland Architecture & Design Festival
Thursday, September 29 – Monday, October 31

This October marks the 3rd annual Portland Architecture + Design Festival. This month-long, city-wide celebration of our local built environment and design community features architectural tours, film screenings, public exhibitions, design lectures, and more.

This is a festival for the entire city, from design enthusiasts to design professionals, policy makers to homemakers, students to senior citizens. The Portland Architecture + Design Festival presents the opportunity for each of us to have an extended conversation about design in the Rose City. We will engage in new places and unique ways of interacting with our city; discover the buildings, landscapes, neighborhoods, and urban spaces that make Portland special; and explore new issues and ideas shaping the future of design and community.

Highlights of the month-long festival include:

    As an architect in training, I’d love to go! Plus, I’ve been sick with the flu this week and that would really cheer me up.

    I’m an interior design student and would love to see architecture and design in action! Plus, I just purchased my textbooks today which means I have no money for anything fun for the next few months ;)

    I work in construction finance, behind the scenes of many a home build. I have yet to visit a home site and see the fruits of my financing accomplishments, but if I did, I would not see homes of the caliber on this Architectural Design Tour. What a delicious menu of design elements from mid-century through today!

    I am also fascinated by the film retrospective, particularly “Lost Buildings” and “My Playground” about urban design and how architecture and lifestyle coalesce in the city.

    This is one multimedia, multifarious event that sounds educational, enjoyable, effervescent and has my excitement literally and figuratively BUILDING. I would love to be a part of the events, and those tickets would be delightfully appreciated.

    We love old homes, especially those crafties and mid-centuries! We will be building our own mobile, effiency-home, on-wheels and would benefit from some direct, first-person inspiration.

  5. Sarah K September 29, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    We want to learn ideas on how to renovate / retrofit old homes!

    This looks like an amazing tour. Just read an article about similar housing projects in Sunset Magazine (article- “A tree grows in Portland”.- August Issue). These houses are impressive. Would really like to see the Belluschi House. Please pick me!

    Just got laid off from my job. Love this tour, and REALLY want to go. PS love your website, too

  9. Mela September 29, 2011 at 5:41 pm #

    I would love to go!!

  10. Carl September 29, 2011 at 5:54 pm #

    I enjoy all aspects of homes and development this would be a great boon for my unemployed self to get some current information and maybe a few contacts.

  11. BONNIE MELTZER September 29, 2011 at 6:16 pm #

    My husband and I would love to go…we have been remodeling our house for so many years we are on the second round in the same house. We love to go on walks and comment on every house, It would be lovely to see good ones this weekend.

  12. Stan September 29, 2011 at 7:38 pm #

    My girlfriend would love to go to this, and I would love to surprise her with tickets. Since we’re both broke, I’d very much like to win these… plus, it would almost certainly get me some “free ticket lovin”

  13. danielle September 29, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    Coming from IL, I’m a sucker for great design and architecture. I’d love to see what’s on the horizon for Portland…the city that I now live in:)

  14. Boomer September 29, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    It’s time to dream bigger than just moving up to a double-wide!

  15. pdxRay September 29, 2011 at 8:32 pm #

    Sounds like a lot of fun. I love great homes and great design.

  16. Todd Bachmann September 29, 2011 at 8:39 pm #

    I know it’s probably more my myopic tendencies but I haven’t seen much in this city in terms of architecture or design. This event looks like the design bitch slap I need to open my eyes more.

  17. Diane September 29, 2011 at 9:05 pm #

    As a local Oregonian-Portlander I would take my son on city walks to learn, look and comment about the architecture in the city. It would be a wonderful opportunity to share this event with my son now that he is an adult.

  18. Nick September 29, 2011 at 9:17 pm #

    The Belluschi House!

  19. Rachel September 29, 2011 at 9:41 pm #

    I’m interested in public policy and how it relates to housing.

  20. liz September 29, 2011 at 10:19 pm #

    It’s my boyfriends birthday and he loves nothing more but design and architecture type stuff. It would be nice to surprise him with these tickets.

  21. Carine A September 29, 2011 at 10:35 pm #

    This sounds amazing! I’d love to go, being a broke grad student this is probably my only chance. Scholarships for conferences to talk about this stuff but not for actually seeing what gets build-its a damn shame, know that I think about it!

  22. Julia September 29, 2011 at 10:47 pm #

    We just moved to to Oregon this summer and think this would be a great way to get to know our new city!

    I like design, and it’s my birthday this weekend! Yay presents from PDX pipeline!

  25. Teddie September 30, 2011 at 5:27 am #

    It would be nice to finally win something. :) And this would be a lot of fun!

  26. Yuri September 30, 2011 at 6:51 am #

    We want to buy our first home and would love some inspiration!!

  27. Ian September 30, 2011 at 6:53 am #

    I love looking at beautiful old homes but I rarely get a chance to see them from the inside. I would love to go.

  28. Pam September 30, 2011 at 7:29 am #

    I want to dream….and seeing is a good start!

    I want to dream…and seeing is a good start.

  30. anna September 30, 2011 at 8:02 am #

    Sounds amazing, would love to take in the inspiration.

  31. jozee September 30, 2011 at 8:03 am #

    I would love to attend this event; thanks for great list you maintain!!!

  32. Andrea Roselle September 30, 2011 at 10:14 am #

    I would love to attend this!! Have worked in the building industry in this city for YEARS and now work for Rejuvenation, one of the BEST places for home facelifts:)

  33. Hannah September 30, 2011 at 10:18 am #

    This sounds like such an amazing event and as a recent interior design graduate I would be honored to go. I love when there are architecture and design events in the Portland area and I can’t wait for Portland Archtober!

  34. james September 30, 2011 at 11:03 am #

    I’m a graphic designer interested in all things ‘design’. I need inspiration (all the time) and this will stoke that fire. Thanks for offering these tickets up!

  35. Kim September 30, 2011 at 11:03 am #

    I would love to attend this event! My fiancé and really love modern, and minimalist designs and we were really disappointed with this year’s Street of Dreams. We would love to see those amazing houses!

  36. Kelly September 30, 2011 at 2:11 pm #

    Portland arch porn, live and in person. Yes, please; pick me!

  37. Sean October 6, 2011 at 12:46 pm #

    I am a recent architectural grad from Montana State University in Bozeman, MT. I would love to attend this event (for obvious, nerdy architectural reasons), and my finance and I will be in Portland at the end of the month! What a great event and even better timing! Pick us!

  38. Sean October 6, 2011 at 12:48 pm #

    oops, missed the bit about the Sept. 30th deadline… my bad

  39. Irina October 13, 2011 at 5:24 pm #

    It’s my boyfriend birthday and this would be the greatest, nicest gift for him. I received this e-mail past the deadline.

    Thank you!

    A great chance to get a new set of Lincoln Logs.

  41. jed October 14, 2011 at 3:46 pm #

    I love A&D!

  42. Naomi July 15, 2015 at 9:48 pm #

    I have a passion for interior design. I’d like to see what Portland has to offer.
