“Although I have considered myself sensitive to urban design, the intense two-day experience [at MICD] put many pieces together in a historical context that I hadn’t been fully aware of before. It provided insights, creating the big picture of how the world’s cities and how our nation’s cities have evolved and put into perspective how our city, Portland, fits into that big picture. The information I learned made me proud of my city and it will strengthen my position for good urban design when I make decisions in the future.”
— Former Portland, OR Mayor J.E. Clark
