"Becoming Savannah: Slow Urbanism, Italian Influences and the Ideal City"
Saturday, April 13-Thursday, April 25, 2013
1 N. Fahm St.
SCAD presents an exhibition of work by graduate architecture studio students in collaboration with students in architectural history. Featuring analytic drawings, a multilayered city model and a short film, "Becoming Savannah: Slow Urbanism, Italian Influences and the Ideal City" explores the ideals of "slowness" in architecture, urbanism and in the act of drawing the city. Savannah is compared to select historic cities in Italy, all of which are examined for their qualities of urban slowness.
This project was directed by SCAD professors LaRaine Montgomery and David Gobel and was sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute in New York City, which hosted the exhibition and a related symposium with students from SCAD and the University of Bologna in January.
Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
