Allied Works Architecture is a 40-person practice led by architect Brad Cloepfil from offices in Portland, Oregon and New York, New York. Guided by principles of craft and innovation, Allied Works is known for creating designs that resonate with their specificity of place and purpose.
The firm’s practice is grounded in the belief that architecture provides meaningful new insight into its surrounding physical and cultural landscapes. Using a research-based approach, Allied Works distills the elemental principles that drive each of their projects and transforms these into architectural designs that engage the public imagination and amplify a city’s cultural legacy.
Founded in 1994, Allied Works is widely recognized for its cultural projects, including the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver, Colorado; the Museum of Arts and Design in New York; the Seattle Art Museum; and the National Veterans Memorial & Museum in Columbus, Ohio.
