About Honored Citizen:

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.

About the Architecture Foundation of Oregon:

The Architecture Foundation of Oregon supports Oregon’s quality of life and creates awareness of our designed environment through education, engagement and inspiration

AFO believes that all Oregonians benefit from thoughtful design in their homes, in their community and in the environment around them. Through dynamic programming such as our Architects in Schools and Civic Engagement Workshops, AFO works with community partners to share design’s role in shaping our future.

AFO partners with organizations across the state to connect communities with the power of design. By convening conversations and encouraging involvement, we empower people to embrace design as a tool to impact the future of Oregon for generations to come.

AFO embraces the special sense of place that makes Oregon a unique location. From honoring the people and organizations that define this place we call home to fostering the next generation of leaders and thinkers, we work to ensure that our built and natural environments inspire us to dream more, create more and do more.
