Reed College: 25 Years of Belluschi Designs

reedadmission:

  In May of this year, Restore Oregon hosted a tour of homes designed by Pietro Belluschi in the Portland area. For people who saw these beautiful designs and left wanting more mid-century Modernism, you are in luck: you can find more Belluschi nestled in amongst the array of architecturally interesting buildings on the Reed College campus in SE Portland.

Stephanie Gustafson ‘12 just posted a great article on Restore Oregon about the buildings on campus designed by the architect Pietro Belluschi. The buildings on campus are a beautiful, eclectic mix of styles, and Belluschi’s creations add to that feeling.

Guesswork and the Rankings Game

For now, these gnomes are happily relaxing in the air conditioned comfort of my office. However, starting tonight, they will be taken—one by one—to their new home in the steam tunnel. Join me for a tour of the tunnel tonight or tomorrow night and you may be the one who gets to hide one of them. Two tours each night: 8:30 & 9:00 pm in front of Eliot (south side) #reedcollege

The Paradox got a beautiful makeover this summer! We have two on-campus student-run coffee shops: The Paradox and The Paradox Lost. The first is next to the Student Union, and the other is in the Biology building, near the library and the Educational Technology Center. They serve espresso drinks, a range of teas and tasty treats.
