PORTLAND, OR--September 12, 2022--Restore Oregon has selected eleven historic projects across Oregon to receive a 2022 DeMuro Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation, the state’s highest honor for the preservation, reuse, and revitalization of architectural and cultural sites.

This year’s winners join more than 100 projects that have been recognized with DeMuro Awards since 2013. Winning projects are selected by a jury of top professionals in the fields of architecture, engineering, planning, and historic preservation. “This year’s DeMuro-award winning projects serve as inspiration for solving real-world challenges in communities throughout our state,” said Nicole Possert, Restore Oregon’s Executive Director. “Our jury from across Oregon selected the 2022 award recipients based on each project’s positive impact upon its community, the ways in which each project might inspire others to save historic places, and the degree to which each project aligned with Restore Oregon’s mission to preserve, reuse, and pass forward the historic places that reflect Oregon’s diverse cultural heritage and make our communities inclusive, vibrant, and sustainable.”

The reuse of existing buildings and materials is an effective way to curb carbon emissions and reuse projects typically save between 50 and 75 percent of the embodied carbon emissions compared to constructing a new building. Existing buildings are not only full of history, craftsmanship, and charm, but are also sustainable. “The DeMuro Awards helps Oregonians understand that preservation isn't a relic of the past with little relevance to modern life, but rather an important tool for building a future our region’s cultural heritage is documented and shared in vibrant and inclusive ways, and where preservation is accepted as a valuable tool in helping to solve challenges such as insufficient affordable housing, stalled economic development, and negative impacts from climate change.” said Possert.
