Summary note:
SCAD: The Architecture of a University reveals the resplendent design and perennial charm of SCAD's built environment, featuring more than 450 color and archival photographs of signature SCAD spaces. A history section recounts the university's most cherished moments. Highlighting 40 of SCAD's preeminent buildings on four global campuses, SCAD: The Architecture of a University celebrates the rich history and enduring legacy of the world's most comprehensive art and design university as it prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Remarkably detailed narratives illuminate the storied pasts of the university's unique architectural treasures--from its flagship Poetter Hall in Savannah, to majestic Ivy Hall in Atlanta, to the bucolic and elegant Maison Basse in Lacoste, France, to the noble North Kowloon Magistracy Building in Hong Kong--and outline SCAD's meticulous care in artfully conserving each historic structure. Historic preservation and adaptive reuse have been a prominent part of SCAD's identity since President Wallace founded the university in 1978. Wallace has been recognized for her efforts by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, American Institute of Architects, and the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, among others. Under Wallace's leadership, the university has redeemed and revitalized more than 100 buildings on three continents, with the award-winning SCAD Museum of Art as one of the most extensive restoration projects to date.-- publisher's website
