Chasing the Kids around the City: The Architectural Evolution of Portland Public Schools

Portland Public Schools has one of the larger intact collections of pre 1967 schools in the West, with 94 of its 98 properties erected during that time period. The school buildings address the city’s ever changing demographics, political ideologies, architectural character, educational philosophies, notions of health and fitness, and economic progress. There will be a review of three major school building campaigns and related stories about the architects, builders, administrators, and students.
