A Spirit of Resilience: Galveston, Texas
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for Galveston’s historic district,
but people like metalworker and sculptor Doug McLean, have been working on these iron-clad buildings for many years. He got his start
by working on the historic iron-hull tall ship, the Elissa.

Adaptive Reuse: Historic High School
Schooley Caldwell has converted a historic building in Columbus, OH, into a high school for underprivileged students. The firm has been involved with the project for many years, going back to the 1970s.
New Construction: Downtown City Hall
Alpharetta, GA, a growing suburb outside of Atlanta, had outgrown
not only its city hall, but also its downtown. David M. Schwarz Architects designed a new master plan along with a new city hall.
Landscapes: Private Garden Goes Public
Going public takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to gardens. The historic Greenwood Gardens in New Jersey is now open to the public, thanks to a recent conversion led by Historic Building Architects, LLC, and Rodney Robinson Landscape Architects.
