You’ve got to see this video of the new SCAD Art Museum in Savannah

Architectural Digest recently featured a look at the new museum at the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. The SCAD museum is housed in an 1853 railroad depot. According to Preservation Nation “The depot, built to serve passengers and freight traveling on the Central of Georgia Railway, had deteriorated beyond repair. Long abandoned and lacking a roof, its beams were exposed to the elements; only two brick walls remained intact.”
