Portland Chapter

Portland, OR Blog

All aboard the Portland Spirit to mix, mingle and get a front row seat to see the Christmas Ship Parade. This SEGD member only event will include a 3-course plated meal, live entertainment and a 360 degree view of the Willamette. Speaking of degrees, if the weather outside is frightful, our guests will be delighted to the feel of a nice, cozy, and warm deck that is fully enclosed.  We look to reflect on 2019 and what to look forward to in 2020! 

Portland Chapter Event: Make your Mark

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.
