WHAT: New book published, PDX ARCHITECTURE Photographs by Ancil Nance

WHEN: October 8, 2022

WHERE: Portland, Oregon

WHY: PDX Architecture by Ancil Nance will epitomize the words of Johann Wolfgang Goethe “Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music.”

You will recognize some of the tunes, catch a hint of a symphony, and sing along when you see your favorites. Some will not be known by name, but that is to be expected. In time you may come to know that beauty is in the beholder as you begin to see Portland’s frozen music as it rises in splendor and variety every day.

For people who are new to Portland you will see why we love our city, and for those who have forgotten even your favorites, I hope that this gentle reminder to look up will brighten the corner where you are.
