Smith|Allen is a design firm based in Oakland California. Our work is interdisciplinary in focus bringing design, innovation, and novel concepts to bear on a wide range of projects.
Smith|Allen brings together an architectural designer with a sculpture and installation artist. Our work responds to site, form, structure, and interaction. We are focused on creating design driven identities and products, site-responsive, large scale works and spaces that investigate natural, technological, and constructed systems within the built environment.
Utilizing digital fabrication processes, we make, do, create, and build projects that push the envelope of art, design, and architecture. We seek grafts, transmutations, and transfiguration within the spaces of our surroundings, and to push art and design in the public realm.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
