Allied Works Architecture

Portland, Oregon

Allied Works Architecture is a bi-coastal architectural practice with offices in Portland, Oregon and New York City. Under the leadership of founding principal Brad Cloepfil the 40-person practice strives to “discover and distill the elemental principles” inherent to every building project. This profound awareness has aided the Allied team in their production of an impressive range of culturally relevant and timeless structures. Most significant of these may be the Maryhill Overlook sited in the Columbia River Gorge near Goldendale, Washington. The project, completed in 1998, is a 150-foot long concrete ribbon that skirts the edge of the canyon’s cliff. Rising and falling as it traverses the landscape, the project seeks to enhance the experience of the site.

Other projects of note include the Wieden + Kennedy Agency Headquarters, which is a benchmark for adaptive reuse and workplace architecture; the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; the Dutchess County Residence Guest House; the re-design of 2 Columbus Circle for the Museum of Arts and Design; Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in the Dallas Arts District; and the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

The practice’s current projects include the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado; the National Music Centre of Canada; and the design of the East River Walk in New York City, among others.
