This week marks the first Design Week Portland, a multi-venue, multidisciplinary celebration of design in its myriad forms, with talks, films, exhibitions and workshops—many of them free, almost all cheap—around the city. Instead of writing about it (dancing about architecture, and all that), we thought we'd show you some of the actual designs created by the people who will be speaking and exhibiting.
GO: Design Week Portland runs through Oct. 13 at various venues around Portland. See designweekportland.com for more info.
