In the summer of 2018, Olson Kundig unveiled a sleek, 42,800-square-foot home for the Tillamook Creamery’s visitor center, an attraction in Tillamook, Oregon, that hosts up to 10,000 visitors per day. Part museum and part food hall, the new space celebrates the agricultural heritage of the area, along with the farmers and products of the dairy co-op. The building’s palette of pale wood and dark steel was an abstracted, contemporary interpretation of traditional barn architecture. “We designed the opportunity for visitors to make a connection between the food on their plates and the story behind it,” said Olson Kundig principal Alan Maskin.
