Samir Mokashi, Principal at Code Unlimited, will be teaching a 2-hour code seminar, “2019 OSSC Updates". The course will focus on understanding the changes between current Oregon codes and the 2019 OSSC adoptions, including 2018 IBC codes. Regulations on the issues common to most building types and those that may be commonly misunderstood or misapplied will be covered. This course will explain what changed, why it changed, and how to apply these updates correctly in your projects.
AIA Oregon is proud to be a partner of the 2nd National Urbanism Next Conference, held May 7-9, 2019 in Portland, OR.
Last year, we discussed how technology is changing cities. This year, we will focus on the ways that technological innovations can be harnessed to achieve desired outcomes. What has been tried? What has worked? What has not worked? What should we try next? How can the private and public sectors collaborate to ensure that desired outcomes drive technological innovation rather than the other way around?
