PDX + Jacob Hashimoto

How do you capture the spirit of the Pacific Northwest in architecture and design? Let’s ask the diverse team of creatives currently at work upgrading the heart of the Portland International Airport. Over the next few years, they’ll bring even more of the character and experiences you love to PDX. (And don't worry, we'll still have carpet for your shoe selfies.)

This creative conversation focuses on the local places, people and passions inspiring these new airport designs, including world-renowned artist Jacob Hashimoto, who tapped into Pacific Northwest environments for two immersive installations at PDX. This interactive session will introduce you to the artists, architects and planners defining the future of travel in our region.

Join us as we chat candidly about keeping the heart and soul of PDX, airports as art venues and building inclusive public spaces.

  • Learn what's happening behind-the-scenes at PDX from the Port of Portland's Executive Director Curtis Robinhold.
  • See some early designs of the new main terminal at PDX and hear what Pacific Northwest places inspired them from Sharron van der Meulen, partner at ZGF.
  • Join a conversation with Jacob Hashimoto and RYAN! Feddersen, moderated by PDX Art Program curator Wendy Given.
