2014 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

College of Architecture East Architecture Building
Georgia Tech Atlanta, Fulton County

Constructed in 1952, Georgia Tech's College of Architecture East Building is one of several early modern buildings on campus designed by Professor of Architecture Paul M. Heffernan. Over the years, the interior of the building endured significant and insensitive changes. Efforts to restore the building's historic character began with the 2009 rehabilitation of the Reinsch-Pierce Family Auditorium and the dean's suite of offices. The restoration of the original Architecture Library to the sleek modern space that Heffernan designed began in 2012. Interior additions were removed and original finishes including terrazzo floors, aluminum frame windows, wooden shelves and a cork wall, were restored or replaced in kind. Today architecture students can once again experience this building as it was intended.
