the Pearl district
Heres a picture of the Pearl District from the 70's. I recently learned the Broadway Bridge used to have a giant viaduct wayyyyy longer then it already is. In the bottom middle where all the trains are parked is where The Fields Neighborhood Park is today.

Denver airport
Looks like I'm sleeping at the Denver airport tonight.
Denver airport
Got a free hotel room, food vouchers and upgraded to first class. #MikeRiscicaVIP #Movebitchgetouttheway Hey did you know Denver airport is the largest commercial airport in america and the white tents are supposed to suggest snow capped mountains. The whole airport project was strong armed by a former mayor who was looking for a design similar to the Sydney opera house. #DEN #DIA #Tent #light #coloradoarchitecture #denverarchitecture #tensilearchitecture #fabricroof #bobdenver #bobpotter #sustainability #buildingsection #crocodiledundee

Here's another picture of the #pearldistrict from the 70's. The old Broadway bridge overpass ended at NW 14 and Lovejoy. Not sure when it was torn down. #nwportland #PortlandArchitecture #pdxhistory #thefields #lovejoybuilding @kshwissy
Louis Kahn Kimball Art Museum theater
When you have all the answers about a building before you start building it, your answers are not true. The building gives you answers as it grows and becomes itself. #loukahn #kimball
This was another great moment in architectural photography.

St John's Historic City Hall Portland Oregon
Last summer I replaced the metal roof on the St. Johns Historic City Hall. When we removed the existing roof, we found that the structure holding up the 1000 lb bell that sits on top of the cupola, was completely rotted out and ready to let the bell fall straight through the building. The contractor hired an emergency crane to come hoist up the bell while they quickly replaced the wooden structure below. Crisis averted. #Stjohnsbridge #stjohnsprecinct #stjohsncityhall #stjohns #northportland #Portlandnw #portlandoregon #instapdx #pdx #WhatAnArchitectDoes
