Where Does Architecture in Savannah Go from Here?
The New Humanism

Read any article about new designs for Savannah and Christian Sottile’s name is sure to be included.  His work, including the new Power Plant Hotel, has stretched how we think about new building projects. The Friends of Massie are pleased to announce that Sottile will be the next speaker for History and Architecture Lecture Series on June 29th.
What is “New Humanism”?
It proposes cities as people—that our built environments literally provide expressions of our own experiences of our own bodies, gestures and perceptions. Christian Sottile will center on the art and science of urban design and why building for a more humane future is both timely and essential.

Sottile will touch on how theorists, over the centuries, have sought and created human forms in architecture, juxtaposing appealing buildings with ones that are not, and connecting the very language we use to describe cities to the language of the body and of human perception.

Christian Sottile is principal of Sottile & Sottile, a Savannah-based urban design firm working extensively in Nationally Registered Historic Districts.  His work includes civic design and master planning, emphasizing historic research, urban analysis and community-wide engagement. Concurrently with his professional practice, Sottile is a professor of Architecture and Urban Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design and served for five years as the dean of the SCAD School of Building Arts.
