Savannah Port Museum Concept

This project is a conceptual museum design and site plan, fictionally for the city of Savannah, Georgia.

While the city of Savannah welcomes tourists from all around the United States, the tourists are more interested in haunted attractions, trolley tours and holiday celebrations, rather than the city’s rich history as a port. These tourist activities are mainly geared toward the adults in the family.

What if we developed a fun experience geared towards children and families that would help them learn what has made Savannah what it is today?

This museum complex would be fictionally constructed on River Street, right on the shore of the Savannah River. It would leverage pairs – new and old, passive and active, indoor and outdoor – to create an accessible experience that lets guests see what they want to see and learn what they want to learn.
