This October marks the 3rd annual Portland Architecture + Design Festival. This month-long, city-wide celebration of our local built environment and design community features architectural tours, film screenings, public exhibitions, design lectures, and more. This is a festival for the entire city, from design enthusiasts to design professionals, policy makers to homemakers, students to senior citizens. The Portland Architecture + Design Festival presents the opportunity for each of us to have an extended conversation about design in the Rose City. We will engage in new places and unique ways of interacting with our city; discover the buildings, landscapes, neighborhoods, and urban spaces that make Portland special; and explore new issues and ideas shaping the future of design and community.

The Architecture + Design Festival is presented by the American Institute of Architects Portland and the Center for Architecture, in collaboration with many of Portland’s finest arts and culture organizations.
