We understand preserving culture and tradition is important when designing a tribal facility. Tradition is displayed in the entrance of this 67,000sf school, boasting our structurally engineered glass-walled cultural area showcasing a helical salmon sculpture. With its log-wrapped tube-steel columns arranged in a circular fashion supporting a system of stacked 27-inch deep roof beams cantilevering in two directions nearly 24 feet, the tribes' aboriginal territory inlaid map is well protected.

Paschal Sherman received  a AIA Spokane Design Citation Award in 2006.
