Oregon, By Design

The Oregon, By Design (O/BD) initiative is guided by the principle that together Oregon citizens can create livable communities inspired by, and responsive to, Oregon’s natural beauty. When fully realized, O/BD will utilize the full spectrum of design disciplines to identify, educate, and articulate proposals that strengthen the common good for each community. O/BD outcomes are to foster economic opportunities that contribute to sustainable developments, borne out of the community’s relationship with its place, and through stewardship of its natural environment. Ultimately Oregon, By Design will become a statewide policy of design that promotes economic, environmental and social development. Under the leadership of Oregon Architect, Bob Hastings, in collaboration with afo, O/BD is funded by the Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation.
