Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in September and October 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

This is the Portland Hotel. It stood where Pioneer Courthouse Square is today. It was the coolest building in Portland for a long time... But... It was financially unstable from the very beginning and was torn down in the 50's to be a parking lot for the bustling downtown department store.  Whidden & Lewis was the Architect. They also did the courthouse across the street and City Hall. In 1980 a meeting of the (great postmodern) minds had a design competition that gave us the pioneer square we know and love today.
