The Design Matrix was created by combining the input from multiple Design Committee Workgroups. Each major area of the New Home was allocated a Workgroup with the responsibility to gather and prioritize design elements related to that area.
The Design Matrix was used to inform our architects, THA Architecture, when they began the Design Development phase of the New Home Project.

UUFCO New Home Recognized by Portland AIA
The Portland Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently announced their annual awards for design excellence. Our new home was selected in the 'unbuilt' category by a prestigious jury of national and international architects. You can see THA Architecture's submission on our website and read what inspired their design for our building -- especially the geology of our site and the principles of Unitarian Universalism.
