Memorial Coliseum: Portland's Penn Station?
An interesting guest opinion from Ryan Yaden on the Oregonlive.com site which compares the demolition of New York city's Penn Station to what might just happen here in the Rose City with the potential loss of the Memorial Coliseum. Ryan's opinion piece does carry some weight as he is an architect and his article points out both the historical significance of the Coliseum as well as the unique qualities it possesses as a piece of 'modern' architecture. A good read.
