Clarksburg Architecture Firm in Clarksburg Receives 3 Awards

Posted: Updated:

An architecture firm in Clarksburg recently received three of eight state awards for its projects.

WYK Associates designed the Gabor Folklife Center at Fairmont State University and the new Shinnston Community Building.

The company received the awards from the West Virginia chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

Its president said there's more to a building than just walls and a roof.

"Especially a community building or a folk life center. It becomes part of the community for such a long time. You try to make them 75 to 100 year building or beyond. Very important to have a very aesthetically pleasing functional building," said James Swiger, of WYK Associates.

WYK won two awards for its design of the Folk life center.
