The Complete City Filled In

Diverse housing, affordable hosuing, and workforce housing are among Portland’s most pressing needs. Recent changes in the city’s ReCode initiative have expanded the potential for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to help meet those needs. So long as certain requirements can be met, Portland now allows the creation of up to two ADUs on any residential lot in the city.

The Portland Society for Architecture (PSA) would like to invite you to visualize and test the limits of Portland’s newly adopted building code regulating the construction of accessory dwelling units. The hope of PSA is that this competition will bring to light any overly restrictive rules in the current code as well as give inspiration to anyone looking to build an ADU
on their own property.
