Allied Works Architecture in Portland, Oregon

May 31, 2011

Brad Cloepfil of Portland, OR-based Allied Works Architecture has won international notice for his museum projects (the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis and the Seattle Art Museum addition) and for his career-igniting work for ad agency Wieden + Kennedy. Cloepfil, who studied architecture at Columbia and worked with Swiss architect Mario Botta, cites the physical and spatial qualities of the Oregon landscape as his largest influence. We especially like his simple, clean-lined houses in wooded settings, which take full advantage of the surrounding views and landscape. To see more of the firm’s work, go to Allied Works Architecture.
