That original of that priceless Graves and Belluschi photo is in possession of the widow of architect John Storrs. They were all having dinner at Storrs' house.

The Architectural Heritage Center is presenting a program on Storrs this coming February.


This is rubbish. The Portland building is one of the worst pieces of "architecture" that has ever been forced on Portland. Ok, so it won the competition, but it is not good architecture. It may be a Seminole piece of Post Modern architecture, but it is a bad building. I think that the photo of Mr. Graves sticking his tongue out at Mr. Belluschi is telling.
