Portland, Oregon, renowned for its exceptional food culture and host of local farms, breweries, and restaurants, has been missing one key element for decades - a flagship public market to showcase the best of Oregon. The city’s historic Portland Public Market closed its doors 1942. To fill this void, community members formed the non-profit James Beard Public Market to restore a daily, year-round, indoor-outdoor marketplace in the heart of the city. The James Beard Public Market commissioned Snøhetta, in collaboration with local partners, Mayer/Reed, SERA Architects, Studio Jeffreys and Interface Engineering, for this ambitious civic hub, transforming a neglected and underutilized site in Downtown Portland into a center of community, commerce, and activity.

Snøhetta wants design to be alive. Whether it is on paper or in wood or water, it is alive, diverse and difficult to capture. It does not like to look back on itself too much.
Craig Dykers' lecture will center on how human nature interacts with a range of conditions - cultural, social, economic and environmental - in an effort to understand the world around us. The presentation of the work Snøhetta creates will be described in relation to this narrative - not to conclude an understanding but to begin a new perspective of future work. Kent Martinussen, CEO of The Danish Architecture Centre, will moderate the lecture.

Craig Dykers, Founding Partner of Snøhetta, will speak to the unconventional company's practice of "the architecture of engagement" – a phrase coined by the late Ada Louise Huxtable (The Wall Street Journal, 2010). Using past and current architecture and landscape projects as examples, including the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, the Times Square Reconstruction, the expansion of SFMOMA, and the Lascaux IV Caves Museum, Dykers will expound upon Snøhetta's mastery of bringing people together through design.
