PNCA presented the 2014 Gala : Transformation Now!
A Benefit for the Pacific Northwest College of Art with their world class partner, VIGOR Industrial. The Benefit included live performances featuring K.D. Lang and the art students presented their work throughout the night.
It was a great honor for us to collaborate with the visionary designer Michael Curry as the Art Director of this spectacular Gala. Since GuildWorks specializes in fabric architecture our approach allowed a unique backdrop, which effectively softened the stark industrial lines within the Vigor Industrial Shipyard warehouse and Simultaneously providing unique surfaces for lighting and visual projections.
We are proud to announce and present the ongoing success of the Portland Business Alliance Annual Breakfast Meeting 2014. GuildWorks has been working with the PBA since 2005 and has once again presented a stellar backdrop and projection screens. This year we applied a new style, by folding and tensioning bands of fabric, to gesture the iconic PBA logo. We also designed two lectern covers to facilitate guest speakers and bring an elegant look to the stage in line with the dramatic sweeping fabric backdrop. The results are a refreshingly bold corporate look, that left attendees with a lasting impression.
GuildWorks has been working with the Portland Business Alliance for many years to bring a unique look and style to the Oregon Convention Center. The visual presentation has only become more spectacular year after year. The Annual Breakfast Meeting is the largest networking event of the year, which is to be held April 29, 2014. As one of the state's largest gatherings of business professionals and civic leaders it attracts around 1,000 business professionals and features a prominent keynote speaker. This year the PBA welcomes Bernard Tyson CEO, Kaiser Permanente, who is to speak on national healthcare reform.

The 2013 Spring Home & Garden Show at the Expo Center was a great success! GuildWorks was grateful to showcase one of our working models of our new Home Solutions line of fabric structures. With the help of Tellurian Gardens expertise in landscape design we co-created a truly beautiful space. We made it rain inside the Expo Center! What was really great about this for us and all who came through was that we were able to display very effectively the environment that can be created by our dynamic and elegant structures.
