511 Transformation Launches

The Oregonian, in an article entitled, “Pacific Northwest College of Art begins work on new HQ, set to open in January 2015,” notes, “Contractors for the Pacific Northwest College of Art have started transforming the 511 Building and post office in Portland into the school’s new campus centerpiece.” The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design will be the new PNCA campus flagship, located on Portland’s North Park Blocks along with the College’s Museum of Contemporary Craft and the ArtHouse student residence. Architect Brad Cloepfil is quoted as saying, “I think it will change everything, for the PNCA and for the city…. People will see it as not just a building full of art students, but as a piece of the community.”
