    Portland Open Forum on Design

    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.
