Round and Round the Block

Railroad Square Master Plan, Santa Rosa, CA by Solomon E.T.C.

The University of Oregon’s Department of Architecture is pleased to announce that California architect and urban designer Daniel Solomon, FAIA, one of the nation's leading spokespersons for improving the quality of affordable housing, will speak both in Portland and in Eugene.

Solomon will deliver his lecture, Round and Round the Block, on Thursday, February 19 at the White Stag Building event room at UO in Portland located at 70 N.W. Couch Street. His talk begins at 7:30 p.m. and a pre-event reception will be held at 6:15 p.m. on floor 4R. Solomon will lecture again on Friday, February 20 at 6:00 p.m. at Gerlinger Lounge, 1468 University Street at the University of Oregon. Both lectures are free and open to the public.

Solomon is an architect and urban designer whose 35-year career combines achievements in professional practice with academic pursuits of teaching and writing. Residential architecture and the interaction between housing and urban design have been the main focus of his work; however, he has also expanded into large-scale urban planning, regulatory structures that govern urban design, and residential, commercial and institutional architecture. He is the founder and principal of Solomon E.T.C., a Wallace Roberts and Todd Company.

One AIA CES learning unit is available to AIA-SWO members who attend either of the two lectures.
