Upon opening in 1974, Greenville County’s Museum of Art became the first public museum constructed in South Carolina in over a century. In the years leading up to its design, CGD developed a master plan for Heritage Green, a cultural campus that included provisions for a theatre and library. The Museum site was limited, and the resulting keystone-shape plan fits comfortably between the other structures. The key challenge was integrating the museum and art school functions while separating public circulation from service and staging areas.
