A native Oregonian and University of Oregon grad, Ben Waechter established his firm in 2007 and has quickly become known for his beautifully crafted, award-winning residences. His projects are “notable and compelling precisely for this reason: they have impeccable clarity, with nothing superfluous, and the key idea of the design stands out”. (Brian Libby, Portland Architecture Blog, December 12, 2011).
Also graduates of the University of Oregon’s Architecture Program, Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo founded Lead Pencil Studio, an Art and Architecture collaborative, to pursue installation art, site-specific art, and functional architecture. Their practice is self-described as “architecture in reverse…our projects are everything about architecture with none of its function…spaces with no greater purpose than to be perceived and question the certainty posited by the man-made world.”
In Process is an AIA Portland quarterly lecture series providing insight into the creative process of local architects, designers, makers and creators. This event is free and open to the public.
