B ACK IN THE EARLY 1950s, when Atlanta architect Richard L. Aeck stood with his four-year-old son Tony on a reviewing stand overlooking North Georgia College's revered drill field at the center of campus in Dahlonega, GA, he could not have known that the military barracks he was designing for a site opposite the stand would some 60 years later be restored and rehabilitated by the descendant architecture firm to his own Aeck Associates. Now an architect himself and chairman of Lord, Aeck & Sargent (LAS), Tony Aeck 64 has seen the firm transform and prepare the international style military dormitory his father designed — Gaillard Hall — for another half-century of life. The $5.6M Gaillard Hall restoration/ rehabilitation marks the fi nal project in a $69.85M, two-phase public/private venture that included six additional new structures and a cadet formation plaza, all designed by LAS. Gaillard Hall and two of the new residential buildings — Patriot Hall and Liberty Hall — are organized around the formation plaza to create a COLLEGE PLANNING & MANAGEMENT / MARCH 2013 military education precinct in the heart of the campus of what is now the University of North Georgia. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the University is one of only six senior military colleges in the U.S. The University of North Georgia (UNG) was formed through the consolidation of North Georgia College & State University and Gainesville State College, two of the top-performing schools in the University System of Georgia, in January of this year.
