    Comprehensive Design Studio V-VI Project
    Winter-Spring 2013
              Designed for the Savannah Philharmonic Symphony, The Savannah Conservatory of Music is a new center for music education and performance experience unlike Savannah has ever had before. The center exists as a landmark destination for the city and will provide a variety of performance facilities for the Savannah Philharmonic Symphony and other community or visitng groups.  Situated on the west end of River Street amongst the street's historic shipping warehouses, the idea takes inspiration from the history of shipping, as well as the abundance of ballast stones on the site, and the unique condition of 3 at grade entry levels.
