Planar UltraRes 4K Display Serves as a Key Visual Resource at the Center for Architecture
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Portland operates from a historical building that underwent massive improvements in 2007, and was subsequently renamed the Center for Architecture—a charitable organization dedicated to advancing public understanding and appreciation of architecture, design, urban planning and the role of the built environment in the quality of life.
The Center functions as a meeting place for professional architects and AIA members, as well as an educational and outreach resource for the public. Since the 2007 renovation, a projector system had been used to support the Center’s needs, but as the projector became outdated, AIA Portland sought a display solution that represented current technology. After consulting with Leyard and Planar, a Leyard Company, and learning what possibilities could best serve the space, AIA Portland selected a Planar® UltraRes™ Series 98-inch 4K LCD display.
