Mayer/Reed

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.

Mayer/Reed Creates Site Design with Sight in Mind

We marvel at the world as seen through the eyes of a child, one that is rich with imagination, explorations of nature and attraction to color. As the landscape architects on a collaborative design team for the Elks Children's Eye Clinic in Portland, Mayer/Reed considered environments for children whose sight may be limited. We asked, how could tactile qualities and perceptions of color help enrich their experience? How could we help to put children and families at ease as they approach the eye clinic for treatment?
