Georgia Tech: Drawing Building – Atlanta GA

Description

Georgia Tech’s Engineering / Mechanical Drawing Building was constructed during the Great Depression. Located on Cherry Street, the building was located north of the Guggenheim School of Aeronautics by Mechanical Engineering Building. Its current status is unknown to Living New Deal.

“The Federal Government continued its support of Tech by assisting the Board of Regents in 1937 with the construction of the Civil Engineering Building and the Mechanical Engineering Drawing Building. This $275,000 project allowed three departments to move out of the Mechanical Engineering Building and the Electrical Engineering Building. It also increased Tech’s research capability through a Hydraulics and Highway laboratory in the basement of the Civil Engineering Building.”

  1. The building in question is now the Engineering Science and Mechanics Building.
    It was a PWA plaque from 1939 on the wall next to the main entrance.
