Robin Williams explores one of Savannah’s many remarkable lanes

As part of SCAD’s response to the ongoing pandemic, each academic department has enlisted faculty to lead “SCADextra” live hour-long workshops broadcast via Zoom and available as a recording. Chair Robin Williams led our first workshop with a live tour of the area around Madison Square in downtown Savannah. His tour, Learning from Savannah, analyzed key urban and architectural characteristics of the city, focusing on examples of “elastic urbanism” — a concept he and fellow departmental faculty member David Gobel are exploring in a book they are authoring on Savannah’s urban and architectural history. The tour was an experiment in broadcasting live via Zoom, including some challenges with the sound recording.
