Architectural Changes in Portland

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:50:18 -0700

There are several new buildings and upcoming designs that challenge the self imposed low key style of Portland Oregon, but that appears to be changing.

The building in this photo is named the Fair-Haired Dumbbell and was a crowd funded project by Gorilla Development. The location was once planned to be a Home Depot, but the 2008 recession changed those plans. Now the...

This is the 35th year of Autodesk and AutoCAD, and in the past year I have exchanged emails with the founder of Autodesk, John Walker.
