It is often said Portland is like no other place, but could that be true? This four-session inquiry looks around the world for other cities that are like Portland, with a particular interest in cities outside the USA: modestly-sized, culturally particular, out-of-the-way cities — those small gems that sit in relation to the nations they are part of as Portland does to the United States. Current culture, history, city planning, and architecture will come into view in this global search for other Portlands.
Instructor: Award-winning novelist and architecture/urban planning writer, Matthew Stadler.
