Seeking Sustainability and Affordability
The Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA) is working to create affordable housing for the Native American community in Portland. Using an innovative stacked modular construction technology, Rey Espana of NAYA and Stuart Emmons of SERA Architects are creating sustainable and affordable housing that both respects tradition and is a model for the future. Leah Gibson brings us the story.
The Myth of Portlandia
An interview with Carl Abbott, professor of Urban Studies and Planning at PSU, and Karin Magaldi, chair of PSU's Theatre and Film Department, about Portland's recent trio of locally-filmed TV shows. How are they changing how the rest of the country perceives us? How are they changing us? Sara Gates gets the answers.
Exploring the Intertwine
A new non-profit, the Intertwine Alliance, envisions a seamless network of urban
parks and trails in the Portland/Vancouver metro area—one that would enhance, stitch together, and then expand, over 1,250 miles of existing bike and pedestrian trails, and involve 32 cities, 6 counties, and 2 states. Follow Ramona DeNies on the trail.
Jeremy Young takes us "close to everything, but away from it all" in Estacada.
