Transformational Lecture Series (Bend): Featuring Kevin Cavenaugh

When Kevin Cavenaugh completed his Loeb Fellowship at Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2008, he focused his studies on urban planning, and, more specifically, the regulatory framework that tends to dampen innovative ideas. Kevin’s design efforts in Portland are a prime example of bringing groundbreaking urban designs to life. He has overseen the design, development and management of several projects, including Burnside Rocket (1111 E. Burnside Street), a LEED Platinum, mixed-use building which features ground source heat pumps that use the earth's constant temperature to thermally condition air before entering the building. Now, Kevin has expanded his focus to explore how innovative, compact urban projects can be done without reliance on bank loans. He is currently leading a team of fourteen architects, each designing his/her own “parcel” at 14 Parcels (SW Water Avenue and SW Arthur Street), a truly unique residential project both in terms of design and size. With his work throughout Portland, Kevin continues to shift the current paradigms of urban design.
