SPS+ Architects

SPS+ Architects has provided innovative educational design for Arizona schools since 1960. Some iconic projects include ASU’s Manzanita Hall and NAU’s Walk-up Skydome. Our most recent breakthrough was with West-MEC’s Northwest Campus where we were able to make the concept of Academic Collisions ™ come to life! This new innovative learning process brings students, staff, and industry professionals from a diverse set of industries together to develop cross-pollination of disciplines fostering collaborative innovation in the process.


While our innovative design solutions have extended nationally and beyond, our primary focus as a firm has always been on our work here in Arizona. In particular, we have made a point to reach out to Arizona’s under-served, minority, and rural populations. In many cases, we have developed long-term relationships with these clients spanning decades and multiple projects. This longevity is a direct result of our focus on customer service and delivering a quality product that meets and exceeds client expectations.


In the work thinkLaw is leading across 21 states to create a world where critical thinking is no longer a luxury good, I realized I need to be clearer about why we are so convinced that we can close The Critical Thinking Gap. This gap is far from insurmountable because this is a gap in expectations, not in potential. The truth is that students from low income backgrounds, students who are linguistically diverse, and students from minority populations are often endowed with enormous critical thinking potential. Some call this “street smart,” but I reject that categorization. “Street smart” is just smart. The failure to translate the practical set of problem-solving strategies we associate with being “street smart” to whatever academically amounts to “book smart” is an adult issue, not a child one.
