This weekâ€™s hotel spotlight features the Ace Hotel of Portland, located off SW Stark St and 10th Avenue. This particular hotel trip was designed as an educational tour for my Terminal Studio Project at the University of Oregon. I hope to one day show more of my work on that project, but for now you get the beautiful shots of The Ace. Continue reading
This week’s hotel spotlight features Portland, Oregon’s Hotel Monaco located on S.W. Washington at 5th Avenue. Hotel Monaco was actually one of the first hotels I got the pleasure of staying in, but it has taken me quite some time to write about because I thought it would be hard to describe.

This Saturday will mark the 4th Annual Street of Eames tour of modern homes located in Portland, Oregon. The tour is a fundraiser to help raise money for Chapman Elementary and Beach Elementary after school programs, which help to serve homeless or low-income students in the inner Portland area. This particular event means alot to me, as I was fortunate enough to study the Church Residence, one of the six homes to be presented in this year’s tour.Â I will also be volunteering my time to act as a docent for the tour of the Church house and will be attending the other houses on the tour as well. After the show, I will probably post more information on both the Church house and houses within the tour, but I do not want to spoil the show! Sadly tickets are all sold out (sorry I did not post this soon enough) but there will be another tour next year with four to five new exciting homes as well as some regulars! For now, enjoy the teaser photos of the Solar Church House.
(Note: Sorry this didn’t get posted last Thursday! It appears I set my calendar a week ahead/behind depending one how you look at it. I hope to see you at the tour!)
