THE PDX PROJECT

THE PDX PROJECT  

In collaboration with The PDX Project, one of the four awardees of the precious Portland Airport Carpet, One Grand paid homage to the late, great PDX carpet. Twenty innovative artists with no restrictions or specifications gave their views on this piece of Portland legend. Inspired by the carpet itself, airport culture, or the death of the carpet: If this carpet could talk, what would it say?

The design has become a symbol, a hashtag, an aesthetic all its own, and its absence will be felt by strangers visiting and locals coming home alike. Keep the memory alive and grab your own piece of history at The PDX Project store!
