Reading: “Case Work” by Allied Works

Allied Works (Portland) makes incredibly beautiful and materially rich models that drive the conceptual development of their projects. These models are not necessarily representative of the final form or appearance of the building, but instead explore qualities, experiences, or relationships that drive the project. Principal Brad Cloepfil actually refers to them as “tools” instead of models.


I encourage you to check out Allied Works’ web site; they do an excellent job documenting the design process behind their projects, in addition to the final result.
