TVA Architects Inc. is a nationally recognized architectural, planning and interiors firm based in Portland, Oregon. Established in 1984, the company has a rich history of providing innovative architecture and comprehensive planning services for a wide variety of commissions throughout the United States, but clearly focused on the Pacific Northwest. Award-winning campus projects, master planning, community centers, restaurants and public parks – all speak to the company’s diverse portfolio that balances design aesthetics, performance, and respect for the environment. We have long specialized in master planning for institutions including Nike Incorporated, Sony/Ericsson North America, and Chico’s, a major national retailer. Recent campus planning projects are the new corporate headquarters, animation studio and film-production center for Oregon’s Laika Entertainment and the Black Butte Ranch Lodge Area master plan. For many years TVA has provided long-term planning and visioning services to a wide range of clientele, from the corporate clients mentioned above to numerous private development groups to municipalities and government agencies, including the City of Portland and the City of Tacoma. TVA is known for our ongoing planning and architecture for Nike, Inc., for which we have completed 23 buildings of varying sizes and functions, all reflecting the Fortune 500 company’s sports and recreation brand. TVA’s design of the Nike World Headquarters totals over 2.5 million square feet on 225 acres in Beaverton, Oregon. Far more than a collection of office buildings, the campus planning incorporates a network of trails, a central lake and wetland habitat system, and recreation facilities. The multi-phase project has received numerous awards, including International Corporate Campus of the Year, and recognition by ESPN as “one of America’s most important sports venues.” For the past 5 years, TVA Architects has been engaged in ongoing projects at the University of Oregon. As the lead designers on the Matthew Knight Arena, we worked hard to develop an architectural language that transcends the hulking, featureless boxes that reside on many college campuses to create a vibrant, transparent structure that will share its energy and activity with the surrounding buildings and all of Eugene. Adjacent to the arena, we also designed the exterior of the new University Alumni Center. These two structures create a dynamic and impressive architectural statement and a strong campus entry that will exhibit the spirit of the University of Oregon. Prior work on campus at the University of Oregon includes the renovation of historic Hayward Field in preparation for the 2008 Olympic Track and Field Trials. TVA has been a major contributor to Portland’s South Waterfront district with our design for the John Ross Tower, and is similarly making changes in Portland’s city center with mixed-use projects such as the Fox Tower, Park Avenue West (currently on hold) and both Director Park and Ankeny Plaza projects for Portland Parks and Recreation. In addition, we’ve recently had the opportunity to export Portland’s urban, sustainable living principles to Los Angeles with the completion of EVO, a mixed- use residential project that is a part of a major revitalization effort for downtown LA. We embrace smart design that enriches the natural and built environments, the integration of sustainable building practices, and the philosophy that planning and design that can have transformative power to projects of all scales and types.
