Neither top 10 list has anything from Salem. Nor does the top 25 list on the AIA website. In truth, Salem probably doesn't have any top 10 architecture - but you know, the Capitol has to be on the top 100 list. Maybe the Supreme Court building? First Methodist? What do you think? What are the most architecturally distinguished buildings in Salem?
Here's the top 10:
Timberline Lodge, Mount Hood (1937)What's the top Salem building?
William I. “Tim” Turner, Gilbert Stanley Underwood
Mount Angel Library, Mount Angel Abbey (1970)
Commonwealth Building, Portland (1948)
US Bancorp Tower, Portland (1983)
Skidmore Owings and Merrill and Pietro Belluschi
Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland (1984)
Portland Central Library, Portland (1913)
Gordon House, Silverton (1964)
Frank Lloyd Wright
Memorial Coliseum, Portland (1960)
Skidmore Owings and Merrill
The Watzek House, Portland (1937)
Crown Point Vista, Corbett (1918)
(And where are the Salem architects in the conversation!?)
Also, on architecture, it's nice to see Waterplace merited LEED Platinum certification. It'll be really interesting to see how the building is viewed over time!
