Save the date! 2021 Honored Citizen, Thursday, October 7

Our Signature Event of the Year

Every year, the broader architecture community comes together for one night to honor the contributions of a member of our community and support the mission of the Architecture Foundation of Oregon. AFO Honored Citizens are celebrated for their significant contributions to Oregon’s designed environment. Chosen by a committee of peers from across the field, the Honored Citizen award is one of the most prestigious in the state.

Since 1993, AFO has honored public officials, community advocates, statewide organizations, philanthropists, developers, artists, architects and more. The event is held annually at the Oregon Convention Center and serves as AFO’s signature event.

2021 Honored Citizen, Carol Edelman

Carol Edelman is one of the most beloved figures in the Oregon architecture community. Throughout her career, she has worked on projects across the Northwest from the redesign of Crater Lake Lodge to the Visitor Center at Mount St. Helens. Additionally, she has played a vital role in the arts community in Portland by supporting numerous organizations like PNCA and Portland Piano. We look forward to honoring her contributions to the field of architecture and the broader arts and culture community in 2021.

“I enjoy the event because of the diversity of people it attracts – I see people there that I don’t see anywhere else… It’s a great cross-section, and I think it leads to introductions and conversations that benefit our community that wouldn’t happen elsewhere.”
