We thrive in an interdisciplinary environment bringing design, innovation, and novel concepts to bear on a wide range of projects at various scales.
Smith|Allen brings together an architectural designer with a sculpture and installation artist. Our work responds to site, form, structure, and interaction. We are focused on creating design driven branding, products, site-responsive, large scale works and spaces that investigate natural, technological, and constructed systems within the built environment.
Utilizing digital fabrication processes, we make, do, create, and build projects that push the envelope of digital craft, art, design, and architecture. We seek grafts, transmutations, and transfiguration within the spaces of our surroundings, and to push art and design in the public realm.
