The Architect’s Postmodern Thanksgiving!

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. 

This blogpost is part of Bob Borson #ArchiTalks 15 about with the theme “From The Architect’s Table”. At the bottom of this post are links to all the other Architalks Bloggers, so make sure you check those out.

For the past 3 weeks I have been so damn busy writing for the November Blog Post Surge, that stopping for a few minutes to work on some postmodern thanksgiving Photoshop images became extremely therapeutic to me.

Portlandia Sailing

Here’s the Architects traveling across the sea to bring their Architecture to the new world.

Architects thanksgiving
Here is a scene from the very first Thanksgiving of the Architects giving thanks and sharing their Architecture with their new friends.

Portland-3B-adjusted-color

This picture came my 2014 archive. Last year during Thanksgiving the fate of the Portland Building was unknown. Due to serious structural and building envelope issues, Portlandia decided to dress up as a big architectural turkey.

Portlandia Thanksgiving money
This year at thanksgiving its pretty much set in stone that the Portland Building will be getting a $200 million renovation.   Portlandia is serving the Citizens of Portland a renovated Portland Building and giving back all the extra money they saved by being sustainable and not demolishing everyone’s favorite postmodern building. Thanks to the $200 million renovation, no architectural history textbooks will have to be rewritten or edited.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
