PORTLAND, Ore — Talk about a transformation.
A one-time car dealership turned stamping manufacturer in Southeast Portland is now one of greenest buildings on the planet.
Mahlum Architects’ new studio is the first Living Building Petal certification project in the city. That means the building is as about as environmentally friendly as buildings can get.
Soon it will record another first as one of the highlights of Portland’s Sustainable Building Week.
For the first time the event will be held virtually.
“The silver lining to COVID is that it’s virtual so people can log into these events from all over the country or planet,” said event co-founder Terry Campbell.
Most events will be free. It’s a way to get people who build and design the places in which we work and live more familiar with these earth and health friendly practices.
