Reed Madden Designs
Reed Madden Designs are Jeffrey Reed and Jennifer Madden, a husband-and-wife design/build team that creates site-specific, sculptural environments for both public and private clients. Reed Madden Designs (RMD) has won design awards in both Urban and Green design from the SF chapter of the American Institute of Architects and a design award from the Northern California chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Madden has taught for ten years at the Department of Environmental Design at U.C. Davis. Prior to forming RMD in 1996, Reed founded Reed Studio, an Oakland-based design/build firm known for innovative concrete and poetic environments.
Trained as architects in the 1980’s, Reed and Madden have spent the last decade focusing on public art and place-making environments. Reed and Madden are designers, sculptors and CA licensed contractors who build in a variety of materials including bronze, stainless steel, concrete, earth, glass and stone. Philosophically, they aim to create poetic spaces that encourage gathering and contemplation using three-dimensional metaphors.
