SPARK was created in response to nationwide legislation concerning budget cuts in school systems. Art & music programs across the nation are having their budgets cut or eliminated from their curriculum. The goal of SPARK was to empower students while inspiring them to express themselves & succeed. Located in Detroit, MI, afternoon classes are offered in music and performing arts to local high school students. Tutoring opportunities area also available within the school.
Each floor in the 6 story building will be dedicated to a different department of the school. The entire building is connected by a 6-story acrylic light tower, which acts as a common design element. SPARK is a school that unites users through the use of light and design.
