Exhibition Opening: A Century of Architectural Education

Primary tabs

On August 27, 2008, the Architecture Program at Georgia Tech will kick off a year-long celebration of its one-hundredth year with an exhibition opening and a public lecture delivered by distinguished alumnus John C. Portman.

Exhibition will feature the history of the Program told through images of student work to celebrate Georgia Tech Architecture Program Centennial. Created by Professor Elizabeth Dowling, PhD, with assistance from her student Lisa Thomason.

The Architecture Program at Georgia Tech will celebrate a century of architectural education with a series of events throughout the 2008-2009 academic year. Commemorating outstanding contributions of Georgia Tech architects in Atlanta and around the world, the lecture series, exhibitions and symposia will be free and open to the public.

Please consider car-pooling or public transportation as parking on campus is complex. COA recommends Technology Square Parking Deck on Spring Street just south of 5th. For additional information, call 404.894.3880.
