D5 and D6 students explore Savannah, Georgia

Architecture students from D6 and D5 studios, led by Professors Hardy, Sandell, and Liebermann, took what, in recent years, has become an annual trip to Savannah, Georgia, January 19-21. Almost immediately upon arrival, students hustled over to the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum, where they had the privilege of a personalized tour and lecture from its architect, Christian Sottile. The busy weekend schedule included Saturday and Sunday walking tours through the historic downtown led by Professor Hardy, who provided insight into the city’s ward structure and important buildings. Students also visited three sites along the famous riverfront to conduct site analysis for upcoming D6 projects. The trip culminated on Sunday with a visit to the Jepson Center for the Arts, designed by Moshe Safdie. Then and during some late-night pub crawling, students experienced first-hand what it’s like to live in a walkable city.
