Clever Ep. 151: Architect Chandra Robinson


On this episode of Clever, Amy Devers talks to LEVER Architecture Principal and Portland Design Commissioner Chandra Robinson. A Portland native, she grew up with a great love for outdoor education, inspiring her to spend years as a sea kayaking guide and to study geography and physics. From an early age though, she was always fascinated by buildings and developed a deep love for spaces that felt safe, welcoming and comfortable. She eventually found her way to Boston Architectural Center where she earned her MArch and found exceptional opportunities to work at firms of all sizes. Returning to Portland, she found her professional home at LEVER. First as an architect and now as a Principal, she’s led groundbreaking projects such as the Meyer Memorial Trust in Lower Albina. She is resourceful, brilliant and dedicated to making her hometown feel welcoming, beautiful and accessible to all. Listen:
