AMA Portland Headquarters
Our team was tasked with the challenge of creating a naming system to differentiate the four wings of the new AMA TI which informed the placement of materials in the interior spaces. The four wings were named after four basic building materials: Metal, Wood, Glass, and Concrete. Names were chosen to correspond with the material of the wing, size and location of the room. The conference room signage was cut from the same blackened steel used in the entirety of the building.
AMA Portland Headquarters | Interactive Cork Wall
The cork wall that greets visitors to AMA’s main floor is intended to be an analog version of a light-bright. Our goal to be honest and textile with materials drove this desire to create an interactive wall using custom drilled “peg board” and wine corks with painted ends. This adventure required us to paint over 5,000 corks. Both ends.
