Master Plan
Master Plan

Resurrecting the ruins of the nation’s only surviving antebellum railroad complex, the Savannah College of Art and Design transformed a National Historic Landmark.  The design process emphasized an artistically manual approach, honoring the humanity and integrity of the site’s heritage.

Ruins were integrated within a contemporary concrete structure, preserving and highlighting the historic materials as a fundamental part of the new architecture. With its galleries, art studios, classrooms, theater, public gardens, and vibrant streetscape, this new civic landmark stands as a center of intellectual exchange, artistic discovery, and urban evolution.
