Restaurants partner with AIA Colorado architects for Delicious Designs

Chef Natalie Slevin and architect Mike Wisneski's creation for Sugar Bakeshop.

April is Colorado Architecture Month, but the celebration isn't limited to concrete and steel structures. The American Institute of Architecture's Colorado branch has partnered with five local restaurants on Delicious Designs, to show how architecture affects "where we live, work, play... and even eat!"

Desserts, specifically. Here's the lineup:
