In Latin, Emitque Partem Agri can be translated as "plot of land". This is a tribute to the unique geometrical land subdivision plan designed by William S. Ladd in 1891 in Portland Oregon. Emitque Partem Agri was built for all to recognize and appreciate Classical Architecture as well as the Geometry of the "Ladd's Addition" neighborhood in SE Portland.
