The signature building of the American School for the Deaf, 90-year-old Gallaudet Hall, will soon be replaced with a new building, school officials have said.
The new building — a 60,000-square-foot facility — is being designed by Tai Soo Kim Partners. Groundbreaking is planned for May.
That means that the grand hall seen across an expansive lawn on North Main Street will soon be gone.
ASD officials have said that the building "is no longer able to provide a safe or effective learning environment for the 200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students who attend the school."
Will you miss the Gallaudet Building as you drive down North Main Street, or do you look forward to the new facility?
