Peter Meijer and Becca Cavell, co-founders of the Oregon Chapter of DoCoMoMo and leaders of two Portland architecture firms, will reprise a debate they first presented at a modernism symposium in Florida earlier this year. Meijer will argue for the preservation of Michael Graves' Portland Building, the postmodern landmark that he recently and successfully nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. Cavell will present the case for its demise. Audience participation and comment will be encouraged.
Admission is free.
