About the Center for Architecture

The Center for Architecture is committed to the transformative power of design. Through collaboration with communities, thought leaders, and professionals, the Center for Architecture works to catalyze action to address the most challenging
issues of the 21st century.

The Center for Architecture is an Oregon non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to advancing public understanding and appreciation of architecture, design, urban planning and the role of the built environment in our quality of life. It was founded in 2008 by the Portland Chapter of the American Institute of Architects [AIA Portland], and is located in the heart of Portland’s internationally celebrated Pearl District.

The CFA serves as a cultural venue and resource for everyone interested in the built environment – offering an extensive calendar of special events, exhibitions, presentations, architectural walking tours, and films. The original structure, built in 1880, has been transformed into a highly sustainable facility that both inspires and sustains an on-going dialogue about architecture and design!
