A History of the Memorial Coliseum on Display


We are pleased to have PSU Masters of Architecture student Antoinette Lettiere’s piece “Exposing Portland’s Memorial Coliseum: Decades of Conflict” on display in the outside exhibit case at the Portland Archives and Records Center. 

This collage of articles, photos, and maps collected from the City of Portland Archives was created as part of an architectural thesis exploration.  The intention was to uncover the soul behind Memorial Coliseum’s glass walls by exposing the arguments regarding the place before its construction, during its opening events, and with the more recent arguments to preserve the building as a valuable cultural and architectural artifact.
