"Placing," School of Architecture Lecture Series:
Julie Bargmann, "Working Traces"
Thursday, May 2, 2013 - 6:00pm
“Architects create places, not spaces.” In the second annual lecture series presented by the School of Architecture at Portland State University, six internationally renowned leaders from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, art, planning and anthropology will tackle this once-controversial idea. The series spans the 2012-2013 academic year, with presentations by Dan Wood, Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey, Kevin Daly, Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano, Tim Ingold and Julie Bargmann. Each of these speakers will discuss the ways in which the active processes of siting, locating, positioning and placing things and people in the world are conceived and embodied in their work.
Landscape architect Julie Bargmann will speak as part of the "Placing" lecture series on Thursday, May 2, 2013, giving a lecture titled "Working Traces."
"Evidence of multiple-site histories lurks beneath urban expanses of asphalt and weeds. To reframe vacant land as full becomes the primary act of design, unearthing the embodied energy of men, women, and children who once labored there. Working with these traces makes places within a renewed landscape of ecological and cultural production," writes Bargmann.
Julie Bargmann is an innovative designer of regenerative landscapes and founder and principal of D.I.R.T. Studio ("Dump It Right There"). Based in New York City, she is also Associate Professor at the University of Virginia, where she leads venturesome investigations with students into derelict terrain, imagining renewed sites of cultural and ecological production. Her work has received numerous awards and has been featured in art and design exhibitions worldwide.

The Shaping of Portland - Over a Beer: The Urban Green Kickoff Lecture Draws a Large Crowd
The kick-off lecture for ASLA Oregon Chapter's new "Urban Green" lecture and tour series took place at the Jack London Bar in southwest Portland on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 - and was a great success! It may seem geeky to combine a lecture about the formation of Portland... with a glass of pinot noir. But nothing could be better after a day's work and no topic more appropriate to start a lecture series that examines our urban environment than with an explanation of the historical bones of the city in which we live and work. Even though we spend every day walking, biking, taking the train or driving these streets, Steve Dotterer's presentation put the city into a whole new light. It's hard to imagine Fremont as a highway, but that was in the cards at one point. It's hard to put yourself in the shoes of the designers who thought a sea of parking at the core of the city made sense. Yet the Lloyd Center was born from their vision. As Steve brought us through time, you began to see the iterations that Portland continues to go through. Districts that were once lively, then atrophied, are now coming back. But these iterations are complex and ongoing and we are part of that dynamism. Early Portlandians saw the train as a key to growing the city. Yet who could have anticipated how the car would change this? Beyond the curb lines and right-of-way, Portland's transportation network shaped land use, and ultimately society. Now we must ask ourselves, as planners and landscape architects of this city, what's next?
Jesse Stemmler, ASLA Oregon Mt. Hood Section Co-Chair, about to dive in to the Urban Green Kickoff Lecture, Shaping Portland, at the Jack London Pub in SW PDX.
Steve Dotterer, former City of Portland Transportation Planner, shares his 30+ years of planning experience at the Urban Green Kickoff - Thanks Steve!

Hip shopping centers on MLK. Streetcars bringing people out to their “rural” subdivision dream on Hawthorne. A highway on Fremont?! We work in a contemporary Portland context every day but how did it come to be? How do we learn from the past while maintaining ties to these historical forces and spaces in design and planning?
Steve Dotterrer has over 30 years of planning experience with the City of Portland where he was the former transportation planner. Steve’s extensive historic knowledge and image filled presentation will make you see the city through new eyes - a perspective that looks both in the past and to the future.

The Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association invites you to this symposium presented by leaders in the rebuilding of the cities of Detroit, Michigan and Joplin, Missouri.
Detroit and Joplin are undergoing rebuilding and recovery efforts of very different kinds. Detroit, once a thriving metropolis and the heart of the American auto industry, is in the process of recovering from an economic deterioration that has resulted in a dramatic decline in population from 1,850,000 in 1950 to 714,000 today that has left the city with a decaying infrastructure that it cannot sustain.
Joplin, a town of approximately 50,000 in the southwestern part of the state, is recovering from a massive tornado that killed 161 people and destroyed 30 percent of the city when it ripped through town in May 2011. The tornado left a zone of destruction a mile wide and six miles long. Neighborhoods, commercial centers, and the town’s only public high school were leveled. Despite this devastating loss of life and property, the residents were determined to rebuild and heal. The approaching start of the school year made the creation of a temporary high school and the design of a new building the catalysts for an innovative approach to rebuilding Joplin.
Come hear planning and architectural professionals with Oregon ties discuss their involvement in the rebuilding of these cities and how these recovery efforts have created a laboratory for innovation that is a model for others.

The ASLA Oregon Emerging Professionals Committee recently offered another great opportunity for continuing education, community building, and networking, through the Fall EP 101: Flora and Design Primer. The final class session ended with a happy hour event at the Rams Head Pub in NW Portland, where participants warmed up with seasonal beverages and exchanged their newly polished plant knowledge.
Landscape professionals, recent graduates, and a handful of individuals in related fields came together at locations all over Portland for this three session class held during the month of October. Taught by recent University of Oregon MLA grad Claudia Sims, this course offered a basic understanding of some of the most commonly used plants in the Pacific Northwest, along with discussion about the design contexts in which they would most likely be found. Every participant brought and shared a unique perspective on designing with plants, creating an ongoing and dynamic conversation.
The Emerging Professionals Committee hopes to provide additional EP 101 offerings in the future, incorporating a variety of topics and guest instructors. Keep an eye out for the next installment, and join the fun!

NW Plant Primer... It’s in its second week and going strong!
The class is a series of three sessions, conducted via a plant walk around a section of Portland. Each session built upon a theme. The first theme focused upon stormwater and natives. The second theme looked at large trees and public spaces. The third theme will look at more aesthetic and residential plants with a focus on new and ‘en vogue’ varieties. The response to the class was strong and enrollment filled quickly. Students have had great responses so far – impressed by the knowledge of the instructor (Claudia Sims) and her ability to give a great amount of information yet not overwhelm and talk in depth about the themes.
The final session will be held October 23rd in NW Portland, ending at the Rams Head Pub for an ASLA Happy Hour at 6pm. All are welcome to attend! The ASLA Oregon EP's would love to share some of the energy and success of the EP 101 series with other ASLA members. We hope there will be more overlap in the future.
