Louisiana State University is renovating its Studio Arts Building to create a new home for the College of Art and Design.

The 41,500-square-foot building on the Baton Rouge campus has not seen renovations since 1924, reports The Daily Reveille

The $18 million project will create modernized facilities for the College of Art's ceramics, printmaking and sculpture programs, as well as office spaces. The upgrades also will improve the air conditioning and ventilation systems.

The added space from the renovations will provide students ample room to work on their projects.

Because the existing building is on the National Register of Historic Places, the renovation must comply with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Rehabilitation of Historic Structures.

The renovations are expected to be finished by fall 2022. 

Holly & Smith Architects is the architect.
