American College of the Building Arts Named "Hero of the New South" by Southern Living Magazine

Charleston, SC - Southern Living magazine has named the American College of the Building Arts the first recipient of the “Heroes of the New South” award in the category of Architecture.  The awards recognize individuals and institutions in the forefront of a renaissance in southern culture, arts and cuisine.

In recognizing ACBA, Heroes juror Jim Strickland said, “In a time when we are returning to the values of craftsmanship, this college is leading the way.  Their graduates are continuing crafts that we once feared would be lost.”  The award is indicative of the growing appreciation for structures made with quality materials and exhibiting the craftsmanship required for endurance rather than a disposable, tear-down mentality.  It was noted that the skills learned at ACBA are applicable to both the preservation of existing structures as well is in sustainable new construction.

In a statement, Colby Broadwater, President of ACBA, said, “We are very honored to have been chosen for this award.  It recognizes the college’s accomplishments and its aspiration to produce true artisans, a corps of craftsmen skilled in the building trades and educated within the context of a liberal arts curriculum.”  

Founded in 2004, the American College of the Building Arts’ mission is to educate and train artisans in the traditional building arts to foster exceptional craftsmanship and encourage the preservation, enrichment and understanding of the world’s architectural heritage through a liberal arts education.  It is the only four-year liberal arts college in the United States that offers concentrations in six building trades: stone carving, plaster work, timber framing, carpentry, masonry and forged iron work.
