Save Memorial Coliseum Rally Tomorrow Night!

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Mon, Apr 20, 2009 at 10:15 AM

In the wake of last week's packed public meeting about the Rose Quarter redevelopment, Brian Libby and architect Stuart Emmons are planning a rally to oppose demolition of the "midcentury modern gem."


Memorial Coliseum is getting far more attention now than it has over the past two decades, when the structure slowly deteriorated from neglect. Not only has Portland Architecture run 10 posts about the transparent building in the last seven days, but the Oregonian ran two editorials about the Coliseum this weekend, one anti-demolition and one pro-demolition . The National Trust for Historic Preservation got involved, urging Portland to save the building and this Wednesday the City Council will vote whether or not to plop the new Beaver's stadium atop the current Coliseum site.
