The object of this research was to conduct a material analysis of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon Church in Bend, Oregon designed by Hacker Architects (Portland, Oregon). This research produced an infographic narrative depicting the place of origin of the raw form of the primary building materials used in the church: wood, steel, stone, and concrete. An investigation of the project specifications and the material submittals developed the basis for this graphic narrative. The providers, contacted by the research students, gave insight into the initial sourcing location of the raw form of the material. This research examined a larger narrative about the sustainability of the material selection process in the design of the built environment.
