As architects, we’re grateful to practice in such a wonderful community and wanted to give back in some way. We’re excited this donation will provide a resource for both kids and adults to learn about architecture and design, and maybe even inspire someone to pursue a career in design or create a beautiful space.
— Nathan Jensen, Chair of the NBSA
Children and students are naturally creative and curious. The collection of books we were able to provide for the library will certainly serve as a valuable community resource for nurturing young minds and encouraging and promoting architecture and the architectural profession.

We are so dependent on architecture, but there is not an awareness about what architecture is. That’s why we are promoting it. We don’t generally have that kind of exposure, and most people are not able to travel around the world to look at different architectural styles.
