SCD Community Outreach: Cleworth Architectural Legacy Program 2017

CAL 2017 - Workshop

In early June, SCD completed its 5th consecutive session volunteering for the Cleworth Architectural Legacy program, or the CAL program for short. The Program is organized through the Denver Architectural Foundation and pairs local design firms with schools to teach a 6-week unit on Architecture. This has been our 3rd year working with Jamie Archambault’s 2nd grade class at University Park Elementary and the student projects were focused on why we build communities the way we do. We touched on topics ranging from natural resources, climate, appropriate building materials, and relationships. Students were split into teams of 2-3 to build small models of various buildings needed within a community. We loved working with such bright and enthusiastic young designers!

The Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center featured in High Point University Magazine

The High Point University Magazine Spring 2017 issue was recently released and it included a featured article about the Nido and Mariana Qubein Arena and Conference Center. High Point’s own president and first lady, Nido and Mariana Qubein,  graciously donated $10 Million towards the project which goes to show the commitment they have to the University.

Sink Combs Dethlefs and CJMW have been working together on the design of the Arena and Conference Center.


“Here at High Point University, we are focused on the art of the possible,” Qubein says. “People have asked how we succeeded in the midst of the greatest recession of our time. We had faith and we had courage, and when you put those two things together, you have faithful courage. With faithful courage, amazing things continue to unfold for the HPU family.”
