Veterans Memorial Coliseum is clearly an international level masterpiece of architecture. Take our building tour and see the Coliseum through the eyes of its designers and world renowned photographer Julius Shulman. See what the design intent was, and see the incredible possibilities. Sometimes hard to see and understand its design and engineering brilliance through the closed curtain, overgrown trees, bad subsequent additions, and poor maintenance. The images on this building tour (please press the icons below) will help explain why this building is so special, beautifully designed, and an asset for Portland. And, one of the country's best memorials to our Veterans.
