AIA Oregon Digital Design Series – Grant High Modernization
- This event has passed.
AIA Oregon Digital Design Series – Grant High Modernization is part of Sustainable Building Week.
Located within Portland’s Grant Park, Grant High School is considered the center of its neighborhood, leveraging shared fields, open greenspace, an entry portico referred to as the neighborhood’s “front porch”, and a front lawn where the community has gathered for 100-years. The $138 million, 1,800-student modernization answered the community-wide call to eradicate the boundary between the school and park that developed over time and to re-establish the school as the proud anchor of the community.
The engineering and design team used a variety of sustainable strategies to reach LEED Gold certification and meet the community desire for a sustainable, equitable and inclusive facility, that received an Honor Award in the 2020 AIA Oregon Architecture Awards. The presentation will highlight several of these strategies. CEUs pending.
