Lincoln High School


Lincoln High School

Portland, OR

Bora's design puts the deep history of Lincoln High School and the city as the foundation for the next 100-plus years of student Cardinals to embrace and learn from, as they develop the skills needed to jump all-in and lead on causes that call to them.

Jason Trombley, Chair, Design Advisory Committee

Situated on a constrained urban site in downtown Portland, at six stories high Lincoln High School will be the first mid-rise high school in the state of Oregon. Envisioned as a modern learning environment bringing together a varied program into a cohesive and compact singular form, it will present a creative model of restraint and economy of space while maximizing design.

Prominent exterior glass-wrapped stairs will emphasize the school’s vertical nature while projecting a sense of movement and energy outward. Flexible learning spaces on every floor will cultivate social hubs and intersections for collaboration, with floor-to-ceiling windows and east/west views strengthening students’ connections to the active urban edge and the mountains and hills beyond. The building design features a shared commons space and new media center that will offer generous gathering venues to the greater community.
