TGM CRAFTS ARCHITECTURAL MODEL FOR SKYLAB
A recent project to come through our workshop doors came from a nearby neighbor. Skylab Architecture. We were commissioned to fabricate an exact architectural model of a private residence. Utilizing digital design + fabrication techniques, we were able to create a large scale model out of plywood with our CNC. The hand-built house model was then added to the topographical landscape. The dowels are placed to indicate trees on the property.

COLLABORATION WITH ALLIED WORKS ARCHITECTURE
Our TGM workshop was recently commissioned to fabricated a piece of an architectural model for the cutting-edge design team over at Allied Works Architecture. We modeled the piece, then carefully crafted the piece first with our CNC machine, then by hand to create an exact replica that fit their needs. Click the image below for an article about their design + check out our portfolio for detailed images of the "before" piece we created in our shop.

Check out some of the awesome press Wildfang and the shop have been getting here and here. And check out the store at 1230 SE Grand Ave in Portland! It's filled with awesome work from other Portlanders like Eric Trine and Mark Searcy.
Adrien Segal and Data-based Sculpture
We recently worked with Oakland-based OCAC artist in residence Adrien Segal to fabricate a piece based on years of USGS data tracking the changing course of the Molalla River. We CNC routed the contours, glued and clamped them into the full 3D form.
