Kevin Shultis

Specialist

"Clients are extremely important to the creative process. Their vision for the future of their program or institution drives design direction."

With over 30 years of experience as an architect, Kevin is co-leader of SmithGroupJJR's Cultural practice. He has turned heads for his outstanding work in cultural and higher education facilities, with special expertise in award-winning planning and design of fine-art and interpretive museums, collection care facilities and professional schools for the arts. Notable projects include the Cranbrook Museum and Library and the (still under development) National Hurricane Museum and Science Center near Lake Charles, Louisiana. Over the course of his career, Kevin says he has learned "how important it is to practice quiet conviction of your ideas and beliefs." Perhaps that's why he has great admiration for Abraham Lincoln, who "had a vision and accomplished it, despite incredible opposition," Kevin notes.
