Pacific Northwest College of Art moved into the current campus in 1998. The main campus consists of three academic buildings, which are located within two city blocks of each other in Portland’s Pearl District. The Main Campus Building is on NW Johnson between 12th and 13th. This houses the majority of the classroom spaces, the Philip Feldman Gallery, the Swigert Commons, many student galleries and administrative offices.
Directly across 13th Street is the Stagecraft building, which is the 14,000 square foot home to 3D Studios, Center4Design and the Manuel Izquierdo Sculpture Gallery, among others. Facilities in the 3D Studios include a wood shop, ceramics lab and welding lab. The Cornelia and William T.C. Stevens Painting Studios are located two blocks west of the main campus. The Studio Annex holds 92 state of the art private studios for junior and senior level students. It also includes a 2,000 square feet of critique and exhibition hall at the front of the building.
The Center4Design (C4D) is a professional design studio and headquarters for the Communication Design department. The C4D space features exposed beams, natural light, and an arched wooden ramada structure held in place by tension. Facilities include a top-of-the-line Apple computer lab, conference room, offices and drawing tables placed under large windows.
