We work at the limitless intersections of public art and architecture

About Us

Who We Are
Project One Studio explores the possibilities of connection through new technology, materiality, and the human environment. We are artists, designers, and fabricators committed to craft, experience, and authenticity. We use innovative, often intricate systems to guide pattern development, construction techniques, and texture building. As public artists, we collaborate nationally with architects, landscape architects, engineers, municipalities, and consultants to activate public and private spaces in ways that excite curiosity, welcome play, and delight the imagination.

What We Do
We develop, build, and install large-scale private and public art commissions and custom architectural installations. Because we manage nearly all of our fabrication in-house, our hands and eyes are on the artwork from start to finish. Our digital, component-driven design methods allow us to experiment and solve for site-specific impact. It’s important to us that each project tells a story about the place it’s located and the lives of the people who will see it the most. Just like people and the places they live, our projects are multi-faceted and layered with complex textures, expansive pattern systems, and countless individual parts that together create innovative and inspiring artwork to stand the test of time.

Adam Buente, Founder / Owner
Adam is deeply involved in every aspect of the studio, from ideation to installation. An expertise in computational design, a curiosity about traditional techniques, and a passion for details has led him away from architectural practice toward an inseparable experience of design through fabrication. His level of craft and comfort in moving between digital and physical, always leads the team onto new explorations.

After hours, he is often found back in the studio rebuilding custom vintage motorcycles or hitting the road with his wife Alexandra and pup Bruce in their restored vintage ‘67 camper.

Anthony Noel, Design / Engineering
Anthony brings a logical methodology to the studio while also displaying an innate sense of creativity and aesthetics. Utilizing an engineering background, he can quickly create real-life scenarios and structural concepts, providing the studio with the agility to dynamically pursue creative avenues.

Outside of work, he and his wife Valerie share a love for vibrant plant life and the accompanying wildlife, transforming their once barren lot into a lush ecosystem. He also enjoys playing sports, learning about the universe, and bad 80’s movies.
