From academics to historic properties, it is evident that Clemson has a very special place in Dale and Jackie Reynolds’ hearts. The Tiger twosome is thankful to have the opportunity to contribute to two of their passions here on Clemson's campus. We are thankful for donors like Dale and Jackie Reynolds and their commitment to making an impact on Clemson today, tomorrow and forever.
Starting this fall semester, the new and the old will finally come together when the Clemson Architecture Center in Charleston and the Historic Preservation Program are united under one roof. The programs will unite in a new space at the Cigar Factory on East Bay Street. The new facility will be known as the Clemson Design Center.
A new era of communication and collaboration between the United States and Cuba is under way, and researchers at Clemson University are in the first wave. If all works out, Clemson faculty will travel to Cuba later this year and work with local educators, planners, architects and archaeologists to study and launch a pilot project in the Valle de los Ingenios. It’s the site of one of the 57 sugar mills linked historically to Trinidad, a UNESCO World Heritage city located on the island’s Caribbean coast.
Clemson University has leased space in the historic, renovated 19th-century Cigar Factory on East Bay Street for its Charleston-based programs in architecture, historic preservation, Architecture+Health and landscape architecture.
For assistant professor of landscape architecture Cari Goetcheus, the preservation of Clemson’s historic buildings and landscapes — including its rich stories — is just as important as moving Clemson’s facilities into the 21st century.
