TULSA (Oct. 15, 2019) – Sparks Reed Architecture and Interiors welcomes a new architect to its staff – Bryan Broaddrick. This 32-year-old graduate of Oklahoma State University's school of architecture received his state architect license this month, having completed his required 5,600 internship hours and passed the state's six architectural registration exams.
"This is something I've worked towards since 2005, when I started at OSU," said Broaddrick. "But it's not a culmination of things. It's really just the beginning."
Broaddrick worked many of his intern hours at Sparks Reed, having joined the firm in December 2017. Founded in 2011 by principals David Reed, Gary Sparks, and Jill Selman, Sparks Reed enjoys a reputation for innovative designs, ones that employ creative solutions to challenging problems.
"It's been a very rewarding experience," Broaddrick said. "Architecture is a lifelong learning process. My goal is to never stop learning and improving."
Reed appreciates Broaddrick's passion for athletics and sports architecture, areas where Sparks Reed has excelled. The Tulsa firm has designed stadiums or arenas for 10 different Oklahoma high schools and universities, with more on the way.
"Bryan is an outstanding architect," said Reed, principal and co-founder of Sparks Reed. "It is great to be able to call him a fellow architect now that he has his license. It is a great accomplishment and further demonstrates his talents and character to follow through on his goals and his passion to continue learning and improving his skills. He is a great member of the team!"
