This looks very nice. The Art Institutions in Portland are finally coming of age. Great article Brian.

Nice work , but it would be nice if they would retain some of the hundreds of out of work local Architects for the future Library and Student Center. Dear OCAC , how about a Design Competition

I think you might be a little out of your league on this one.

Whom might be out of what league, black crow? Are you saying I as the writer was not up to the task of evaluating the architecture here? Because that's a pretty forceful argument, especially from an anonymous commenter without any additional examples or articulated points to back it up. Is there something I should have said but didn't? An aspect of the analysis at which I was incorrect? Is there a name you'd identify yourself as so we know whom to turn to in the future when architecture writing does not meet specifications?

Amazing architecture. Do you have any other good sources for me to look at in regards to architecture. I am a freshmen at UCLA getting into the architect program and would appreciate anything. I love what you have on this blog. Any good architects you know would also be helpful. I have been getting into a lot of I.M. Pei, which I love a lot. I stumbled across a pretty interesting list of all his work, which is very inspiration, if you care to take a look. i. m. pei buildings I would appreciate any help, thanks a lot! and keep bringing the architecture information.
