Todd M. Sweet, AIA, LEED AP 

 

The original founder of Sweet Sparkman Architects, Todd was born and raised in the northeast where he received his Bachelor of Architecture from Roger Williams University. Todd spent his internship at Arquitectonica in Miami, Florida where he worked on projects throughout Europe, South America and the United States. In 2002, Todd started the firm TOTeMS Architecture (the original firm name). In 2004 he partnered with Jerry Sparkman to form Sweet Sparkman Architects. The firm has built a national reputation for design excellence and has recently been asked to participate in La Venice Biennale; a bi-annual architecture exhibit in Venice, Italy. In his 20 years of practice, Todd has enjoyed the study of simple building volumes and the exploitation of materials in an unconventional fashion. Civic planning/architecture are Todd's award-winning specialty.

Todd enjoys spending time with his family, fishing and running. Always quick with a witty comeback and a sharp dresser to boot, he remains our fearless leader.
