As co-founder and principal of 3North Architects, and a practitioner in Richmond for almost half a century, Sanford Bond has shaped some of the city’s most iconic buildings, such as the Richmond Ballet, the American Civil War Museum, and the Maymont Aviary. As both an architect and a sculpture artist, Bond's career has focused on creating places by defining space with various materials. The materials of his sculptures are common industrial materials: structural steel, glass, wood, plexi glass or concrete. He exploits the unique characteristics of each medium in the work which lends an appropriateness and timeless quality to them.
