Around Town -Dine and Design Events are Here

By Marisa Swenson, July 23, 2019

It is that time of year again when the Architectural Foundation of Oregon hosts their popular Dine and Design events.This is a fundraising event that supports the AFO programs and one that is near and dear to my heart the Architects in Schools program.

 

From the AFO site:

 

From May through September, guests enjoy a meal or drinks and find inspiration from some of Oregon’s most architecturally interesting places. These lively fundraiser events hosted by friends of AFO bring together colleagues and design enthusiasts to explore the best of the designed environment. Experiences range from intimate dinners to larger cocktails parties.

These events help AFO support Oregon’s quality of life and create awareness of our designed environments through education, inspiration and engagement. Dine & Design raises money to support the programs of AFO, including our vital Architects inSchools program which serves thousands of elementary students per year around Oregon.

In her past, Marisa worked with a company that provided home contractor services.

Pairing this experience with many years of client service and a love of homes made the transition to becoming a Realtor seamless. She is a member of the Architectural Heritage Center, Doccomomo's Oregon Chapter, Restore Oregon where she also sponsors their Mid-Century Modern tour each year.  Working with these organizations, she hopes to help preserve buildings from the modernist movement mid century and beyond, and to help spread awareness of their importance. She currently lives in the suburbs of Portland with her family and is working on restoring her Northwest Regional Style custom-built 1960's time capsule home that will be added to the historic registry in 2017.When she’s not working with clients or scouring the city for hidden architectural gems, Marisa likes to spend time with her family, play soccer, hike in the beautiful Pacific NW forests, visit new restaurants and coffee shops.
