SEGD PDX Student Outreach Event 2019

Our student outreach event this year was a great success! 

This is our second year focusing on student outreach, where six OSU students participated in mock-interviews and portfolio reviews. We had four studios participate this year! 

Thank you to @mayerreed@zgfarchitects@anderson_krygier_inc, and @plusandgreaterthan for opening up your studios and hosting this event. 

A special thank you to Mayer/Reed for hosting the lunch and to Kathy Fry of Mayer/Reed for coordinating this event. 
At the lunch, one student commented about the experience, "It has been wonderful engaging with different types of studios, the varying environments allow for different kinds of collaboration."

It’s that time of year again!  

This time, SEGD PDX is inviting a small group to gather with us at McCormick & Schmicks Harborside to toast the season and plan for next year’s chapter activities.

We can then stroll outside along the Willamette to watch the Christmas ships go by.  Appetizers and drinks will be provided and there is Streetcar service and a parking garage nearby.

The Veterans Memorial Coliseum is one of Portland's historic gems - designed by renowned firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) and completed in 1960.  After a recent two-year refresh, the Coliseum is on its way to being fully restored to its original International Style Modernism.

Join us on a tour as representatives from the City and lead designers responsible for the refresh share the story of the Coliseum's past, present and future. During and just after the tour, we hope to engage attendees in a Q+A session and conversation.

Meet at the Coliseum's main entrance. On-site parking in the Garden Garage is available for guests. *Tour starts promptly at 6:15pm*
