The new School of Law for the University of South Carolina will become a focal point for the legal community in the state. Beyond its primary mission as the center for education for our state’s future attorneys and legislators, the new facility will also provide a home for legal research, continuing education and public outreach. The multi-story, state-of-the-art law library is highlighted by a signature reading room overlooking the courtyard. With sophisticated technology, the auditorium, classrooms and event spaces will serve the needs of the students, faculty, alumni and community well into the future.

In addition to the nearly 187,500 sf of newly designed facilities is the integration of two existing historic structures on the site.

My role was a project architect in charge of managing consultants and client expectations, producing presentation graphics, leading the Revit documentation and interior detailing and putting together the CD set the building is being constructed from. The project is currently under construction.
