The late Bob Frasca designed some of Portland's most iconic buildings, including the Oregon Convention Center and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI).
In honor of Bob’s life and his important contributions to the unique character and beauty of our city, the two venues will display a special tribute in light. Using Morse code, OCC's spire and crescent lights will flash “Bob Frasca” and OMSI will respond with “Celebration of Life”.
The program will run from 6 p.m. to midnight on Sunday, February 11th.
Bob Frasca was a founding design partner of ZGF Architects. His design works include Portland International Airport, KOIN Tower, Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Tom McCall Waterfront Park, OMSI, and the Oregon Convention Center, among others. He passed at age 84 on January 3rd.
