In preparation for the architectural trip we have organized for an association of architects from Lion, next October and the next one we will program on July 2024 (open for registrations), in Artchitectours we made a prospective trip to see some of the buildings to be visited in the Pacific Northeast of USA and Canada, such as:

The Mount Angel Abbey Library building near Portland, Oregon, was designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto in the 1960s. The building’s natural light illuminates the multicolored bindings of books offered in open stacks against a black and white background, softened by undulating curves and light wood.

The Gordon House is the only building built in Oregon in Silverton “Oregon Garden” designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is the only Wright building in the Pacific Northwest open to the public. It is one of the Oregon houses that were revolutionary in their time and have influenced modern houses since their inception.

The Portland Building, by architect Michael Graves, the first great work of postmodernist architecture to be built in contrast to the functional modernist architecture dominant at the time. It is considered a turning point in the history of architecture, as it took postmodernism out of the academic world and into the public realm.

Seattle Central Library by OMA- Rem Koolhaas and LMN creates a civic space for the circulation of knowledge in all media, and an innovative organisational system. The library’s diverse programmes are intuitively organised on five platforms and four intermediate planes.

The Museum of Pop Culture, MoPOP, is located at Seattle Center and was designed by Frank O. Gehry. The most striking exterior features of the building are a series of different coloured stainless steel skins supported by an exterior concrete shell.

We will soon design a programmed trip to this destination where you will be able to register, if you wish, on our architectural travel website or pre-book your place now at
