Building D

Kennesaw - Cobb County
c. 1961

Kennesaw State University
Kennesaw, Cobb County

This building at Kennesaw State University’s Marietta Campus, formerly Southern Polytechnic State University, remains an integral piece of William Tapp’s 1961 campus design. Renovations in the 1980s and 1990s were detrimental to the integrity of the building’s architecture and the primary goal of its recent rehabilitation was to respect the building’s original design while integrating modern technology for classrooms in the 21st century. This rehabilitated midcentury structure now houses several classrooms and offices and sets an excellent example for the preservation of the remaining historic quadrangle.
