Georgia Highlands College, Bartow Center

Cartersville, Georgia

Bartow Center is the first building on a new campus for Georgia Highlands College, a two year institution of the University System of Georgia. The building is the catalyst for a future campus of interconnected greenspaces with perimeter vehicular access and parking separate from the core campus. The interior planning includes all program elements of an independent campus while anticipating flexibility for future growth. The main gallery and library become the central gathering space for the campus and contribute to collaborative learning. Classrooms, administrative services, faculty spaces, science labs and bookstore are organized to promote connections in this progressive learning environment.The interior planning includes all program elements of an independent campus while anticipating flexibility for future growth.
