Bill Dieter – terrazign

It’s always inspiring to drop into Bill Dieter’s industrial design studio/cathedral called ‘Terrazign’ in Portland Oregon. Bill and I actually shared studio space some 15 years ago, as he was getting ready to drop into his own near-city-block scale industrial building. I have to say, …I like what he’s done with the place. terrazign has virtually no constraints to scale or complexity of tools and equipment. From silk to 1″ thick steel plate, Bill has a tool for it. Like FYi, Terrazign embraces a ‘learn through building’ approach to design development, which is so rare these days that both design teams should be on the endangered species list.

Had a great time kicking around his studio for a few days. -TR
