Salazar Architect, Inc. began as a small architecture / urban design practice that was founded to fight gentrification and displacement in the  Bay Area. Today, it is a full-service affordable housing design firm in Portland, OR, that regularly collaborates with the Center for Public Interest Design (CPID) at Portland State University. With the firm's 2014 move to the Rose City, we have expanded our footprint and project types while progressively blending our project workload with CPID. This new-to-us model blends a young-ish for-profit firm with a university-based design center. We will discuss two recent collaborative efforts—a community master plan and affordable housing development in NE Portland—to gain feedback on how to best structure future collaborative efforts.
