In the 50 years since that time, our company has evolved and grown to become a recognized leader in integrated design build solutions. We’re large enough to provide comprehensive, turnkey service, yet small enough to be agile and highly responsive.

Yorston & Associates and their distributor partner, Harbor Sales, supported the Harvard University Graduate School of Design program, Hybrid Formations: Interdisciplinary Design, last fall with a donation of Alumet Supply aluminum sheet metal. Volkan Alkanoglu, Lecturer in Architecture, described the course as a way to examine and implement techniques and strategies for the design of prototype structures out of aluminum sheet metal.

An excerpt from the course description reads:

The process of filmmaking inspired the One Plus Partnership, Ltd. design team to think of a meteor shower. A movie takes years to complete; it is the result of the hard work of a large team of people. The designers wanted to pay tribute to filmmakers through the design of this cinema, reminding audiences of the passion and effort filmmakers have cultivated for their relatively short-lived enjoyment.

When Google’s Kirkland campus was set to dramatically expand, they needed a new wayfinding scheme for both Googlers and visitors. The desire was a design approach that was innovative in the way it reflects the company’s values and attitude.

The Contemporary Craft Center is a place to both see and make art. The center emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning and creating—the same approach Art Center College of Design student Britteny Teng took when creating a visual language for her micro-exhibition.

The assignment was to create an interactive installation to complement the exhibition of an artist’s work and distill the concept that the artist is trying to convey and reimagine it for others to not only enjoy the experience but to understand the process behind the artist’s vision.
