The Oregon ASLA and AIA Portland Emerging Professionals Committees are pleased to invite you to join us in the viewing of Aboriginal Architecture, a 93 minute documentary showcasing a unique view into contemporary North American Native Architecture. This film depicts a variety of responses to the more than 300 year absence of Native American Architecture following the imposition of government housing. By touring seven Aboriginal communities - Pueblo, Mohawk, Inuit, Crow, Navajo, Coast Salish, and Haida - a renaissance of traditional forms, materials, and approaches are presented which meld with the requirements of contemporary life.â€¨â€¨ A testament to the importance and inter-related nature of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, please join us for this stunning movie, delicious snacks, and special discussion! See you there!
