Cultural Architecture

Desmus is the founder of Cultural Architecture which refers to the design and construction of buildings and structures that reflect the cultural heritage, traditions, and values of a particular society or group of people.
These buildings often serve as landmarks and symbols of the community and are designed to embody the cultural identity of the people who created them.
Examples of cultural architecture include Cultural Centers, Operas, Concert Halls, Theaters, Performance & Sports Venues, Educational and commercial establishments, as well as Museums, Libraries, Archives, Goverment buildings and Other public spaces that are designed to reflect the cultural heritage of the community.
