AIR DATE: Tuesday, September 18th 2012
More and more developers are putting up apartment buildings in Portland with no room for cars to park. There will be plenty of room for bikes, however. Developers and city planners say
the lack of car parking will encourage residents to be car-free. But
people who live in the neighborhoods where these buildings are going up
are concerned that street parking will become even more challenging.
you live in a neighborhood where a new apartment building is being
built? Are you concerned about how that will affect parking near where
you live? Are you looking for a place to live? Does an apartment
building without car parking appeal to you? http://www.opb.org/thinkoutloud/shows/apartments-no-parking/
Jean Pierre Veillet is a Portland-based artist, designer, and builder. Trained as a sculptor, Veillet takes a spatially informed, socially conscious, and aesthetically thoughtful approach to projects from tiny retail renovations to ground-up eco-developments. With his firm, Siteworks, Veillet has taken his background in site-specific art and mixed it with a serious shot of writing, poetry, and experience to produce spaces that communicate with people through objects, design, and elegance. Veillet is intrigued by the intimacy that can be created between people and their environments, and by the possibilities of social engineering on a much larger scale. As a developer, Veillet is working on Ecoflats, a green project that incorporates environmentally sensitive elements from a standard curbside recycling program to a reward-based integration of the building’s social scene with its energy credits. He has completed warm interiors for restaurants like Genoa, historically referential interiors for Pearl District clothing stores like Lizard Lounge, and dramatic exterior renovations, and is currently pushing Sitework’s development projects side by side with his own creative passions.
