Portland Among America’s Best for Design

Here’s one more indication that we’re right on track with the focus of the new Creative ConferenceDesign.

 A Zogby International poll commissioned by New York-based architectural firm, RMJM interviewed 1,000 residents in ten cities deemed to be leaders in design policy and practice. With the criteria including architecture awards, “green” design, and public transit systems, Portland ranked among the top five best cities!

“Good design makes better communities by boosting the economy, creating jobs, and, particularly today, sponsoring environmental strategies,” said Peter Schubert, AIA, design director of RMJM Hillier.

Chicago grabbed the number one slot in the poll, while Portland ranked #5 in the country, higher than Seattle and San Francisco. You can read the entire article in the June 26 issue of the Portland Business Journal.
