Academy of Medicine


For more than three decades, the Historic Academy of Medicine served as the meeting place for the oldest medical association in Atlanta.

Designed by Philip Shutze, the Neo-Classical building was built in 1941. The Medical Association of Atlanta used the new space to share and discuss medical theories, techniques and ideas – until hospital libraries and conferences began to replace meetings in the 1970s.

The Academy features Doric columns, Italian marble floors and a domed ceiling where the Czechoslavakian chandelier featured in Gone With the Wind hangs. Georgia Tech acquired the historic building and popular special events venue in 2008.
