South Carolina’s Clemson University has unveiled the design for the Spaulding Paolozzi Center, a building meant to house the school’s satellite architecture and design division.

Led by architect Brad Cloepfil of Allied Works Architecture, the design of the building has a controversial modernist aesthetic. The plans call for an approximately 31,000-square-foot, three-story building at 292 Meeting St., in the city’s historic district. The new facility will be named after Countess Alicia Spaulding Paolozzi, in recognition of a gift from the Spaulding Paolozzi Foundation.

The controversy questions whether the modernist building should be integrated into a landscape known for its historic structure. Charleston's downtown landscape is changing significantly because of population growth, tourism, and economic development, and the community is divided on whether new buildings should blend with the existing architecture or accommodate the new generation.

The design is still in development, but possible features include a green roof, a third floor garden at the rear of the property, and trellis shading elements at the third floor.
