Root Award for Communitecture

The ReBuilding Center and Communitecture were honored at the first annual Root Awards, presented by Portland Spaces Magazine. The Root Awards is a design competition celebrating innovation, creativity and craftsmanship in the Portland Area.

Communitecture won first place for its design of The ReBuilding Center in the Retail Category. In the words of Portland Spaces editor, Randy Gragg:
“…The ReBuilding Center has become the heart of Portland’s reuse ethos and what [Mark] Lakeman calls a “cathedral of community experience.”

Thank you to Communitecture for translating the reuse ethos into a building that we can all be proud of. And thanks to all of you: the community of supporters who encourage and enable us to continue this work.

Congratulations everyone!
