LIBRARIES / CULTURAL

Cultural facilities and libraries serve as anchors and hubs of our communities. Ideally shining symbols of civic pride, they add to the vitality of the community as sources of enlightenment and engagement. In creating such facilities, we open our minds and arms to all stakeholders, leveraging their unique insights in the creation or re-creation of these important structures.

“'Origins' Exhibition, Award of Excellence:  The Jury was taken by this incredibly thoughtful and thought provoking work of art. The presentation of the work was noteworthy in and of itself, but it portrays a concept and attention to detail that reveals a master work that is lyrical and inspiring. It has simplicity and grace on its surface that ultimately reveals a deeper complexity that one discovers only as they look deeper, much to the joy of those lucky enough to experience this precious gem.”
