A cool bit of Reed history over on Dave Knows Portland. If you’ve visited campus, you know that the map pictures above, the preliminary sketch, is almost nothing like the map of campus that exists today. However, some of buildings do date back to the early 1910s, like Eliot Hall (home of the admission office), part of the library, and the Old Dorm Block.

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.
