Established in 1977, Mayer/Reed is a 27-person Portland, Oregon-based design studio providing landscape architecture, urban design, visual communications and product design services for the environments in which people live, work and play. Our designs emerge from a process that explores the social, cultural, ecological and historic contexts of each place, resulting in spaces that resonate with genuine identity.
