An international panel of experts in design, culture and urban planning discuss the Columbia River Crossing.

The Architecture Foundation of Oregon (AFO) and designers from PDXplore present Crossing the Columbia River: What Does it Mean for Our Region?, a two-phase forum in February and March 2010 at PNCA. Featuring exhibitions and public programs, the forum drew attention to the current status of the Columbia River Crossing, increasing citizens’ recognition of the project’s profound scope and impact, and inspiring broad discussion about its potential for excellence. For more information about the forum, visit the Architectural Foundation of Oregon or the PDXplore web site.

Moderator Ethan Seltzer led a provocative discussion about the Columbia River Crossing with international experts in the fields of design, culture and urban planning. Panelists included: Boston Globe architecture critic Robert Campbell, artist Ed Carpenter, outgoing National Endowment for the Arts Director of Design Maurice Cox, and Toronto architect and urban design consultant Ken Greenberg.

PNCA also hosted Columbia River Crossing: An Evening with Members of the CRC Project Team as part of the symposium.
