Portland Open Forum on Design
Portland State University Shattuck Annex

Portland Open Forum on Design: "Expanding Architecture: A Conversation on Engagement and Change"

Portland State University Department of Architecture, Portland State University Social Equity and Opportunity Forum, and Architects Without Borders-Oregon to sponsor a forum on social responsibility and engagement in the design professions featuring Bryan Bell.

Designers have the potential to benefit many more people than they currently reach. No, this is not a call for pro bono work. Instead we are being challenged to play a more direct role in solving the critical social and environmental problems facing the nation and our communities--and to incorporate outreach into our own practice to serve what is an ever-growing client base with real needs. Come discuss the possibilities and challenges as we try to engage a broader range of issues as concerned citizens and designers.

Special guest, Bryan Bell, founder of Design Corps and editor of the much discussed recent book, Expanding Architecture: Design as Activism; Janet Hammer, Director of the Social Equity and Opportunity Forum at Portland State University; Sergio Palleroni, associate professor of architecture at Portland State University and founder of the BaSiC Initiative; John Duke, Clinic Director, Outside In; Abby Dacey, Architects Without Borders-Oregon, and Boora Architects; as well as other local practitioners and housing providers will engage with the audience in a discussion of the potentials and challenges we face in our efforts to create greater accountability and responsible engagement.

Free and open to the public

Coffee and Oregon apples will be provided.

Logan Smith

AEC VR 101: What’s possible, and what’s so easy you should be doing it yesterday.

It’s obvious why the building industry was one of the first to embrace virtual reality for enterprise. The experience of space, scale, light, and texture of a design are communicated better than any 2D rendering.

But VR for architects isn’t just renderings on steroids. The VR tools for verification and collaboration are changing the industry and the built environment for the better. We will take a look at some of the ways architects and contractors have already started using virtual reality, what it takes to get started, and what to watch for just around the corner.

Logan is a co-founder of Bevel, a company providing VR consulting and development for the AEC industry. He runs the Portland AEC VR meetup group. Before moving full time into virtual reality, Logan practiced as a licensed architect and CPHC.

Big thanks to our Sponsors who help make this event happen:
