Congratulations to the Roosevelt High School (RHS) project team for winning AIA’s 2019 URM Seismic Resilience Project Upgrade Award! RHS was recognized by the jury for the school’s excellence in historic preservation and innovation in seismic upgrades. Encompassing buildings designed nearly a century ago, the historically rich school serves as a point of pride for the St. Johns neighborhood of North Portland. The ultimate solution to stabilizing the URM structure at RHS also shaped the design approach for revitalizing the building into a 21st century learning environment and an adaptable facility that supports a variety of modern learning requirements.
