Cultural buildings serve as anchors to communities. Because they function as symbols of civic pride, the vitality of every community depends on these buildings and the collaborative spaces within. To create these “community anchors” Sweet Sparkman Architects designs are guided by a democratic process, enabling staff and stakeholders the opportunity to participate and provide substantive contributions.

“'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.”
