Built in 1961 by Atlanta architect Joseph Amisano, the Jackson Street Building originally opened as the Visual Arts Building and was the home of the University of Georgia’s department of art. The unique building stood out from the traditional North Campus architecture, and was designed to symbolize the creative energy and artistic vision of the department and legendary UGA artist Lamar Dodd. The building underwent $9.9 million renovation in 2011, and is now home to the College of Environment and Design. It has earned LEED Gold certification and features rooftop solar panels, highly efficient heating and cooling systems and a twenty-five thousand gallon cistern that collects and rain and condensate from the cooling system to reuse in mechanical systems and for toilet flushing.
