In this episode of Clever, Amy Devers speaks to LEVER Architecture Principal and Portland Design Commissioner Chandra Robinson. Born in Portland, she grew up with a great love for outdoor education, which inspired her to work as a sea kayak guide and study geography and physics for years. However, from a young age she was always fascinated by buildings and developed a deep love for spaces that felt safe, inviting and comfortable. Eventually she found her way to the Boston Architectural Center where she earned her MArch and found exceptional opportunities to work in companies of all sizes. After returning to Portland, she found her professional home at LEVER. First as an architect and now as a builder, she managed pioneering projects such as the Meyer Memorial Trust in Lower Albina. She is resourceful, brilliant, and dedicated to making her hometown welcoming, beautiful, and accessible to all. Listen:
