In November 1982, the Architectural League presented a lecture by Michael Graves about his just-completed Portland Building, in Portland, OR. Graves' first built public project–and the first major public building designed in a postmodernist idiom–the Portland Building elicited praise and criticism, immediately becoming an icon of 80s postmodernism.

The following video documents a September 2008 program, co-sponsored by the Architectural League and the Princeton University School of Architecture, organized to mark the building's 25th anniversary.
