Allied Works was established to engage artists, builders, and thinkers in a collective pursuit of new expression. We are a community of makers, friends, peers that share a passion for design, and equally, the advancement of our social and environmental well-being. We are united by an ethic of boundless curiosity and uncommon commitment to creating beautiful, moving, and meaningful work.
Allied Works has intentionally built a community that prioritizes diversity, inclusion, and equity in our work and culture. Our work is founded in the search for insight, which emerges from unique perspectives and diverse creative thinking, and can only thrive in an environment where all voices are welcomed.
Brad Cloepfil founded Allied Works in 1994 in Portland, Oregon. Since 2000, the practice has grown steadily through the completion of major museum projects, innovative educational facilities, residences and workplaces of diverse scale, purpose and character.
