Join Architectural historian Robin Williams as he examines William Jay’s Savannah buildings and how they changed the landscape of our city. From refined concepts of design to the latest in building technology, Jay introduced Savannah to an architectural sophistication that rivaled other, much larger American cities. Starting with the Owens-Thomas House, the succession of private residential commissions that Jay received allowed the young architect to mature as a designer experimenting with each as a variation on a theme. Their presence set a high standard for the city’s subsequent architectural development.
