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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
