Located at 225 North Avenue NW in Midtown Atlanta, it was erected in 1888 as the Academic Building, with classrooms to complement the hands-on training in the adjacent shop building. It was the second edifice completed on the Georgia Tech campus and it is the oldest surviving one.

dbo:abstract
  • Le Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building, communément connu sous le nom de Tech Tower, est un immeuble historique du centre d'Atlanta, États-Unis, et un point central du campus de la Georgia Institute of Technology. Construit en 1888 et nommé alors Academic Building, la Tech Tower était l'un des deux buildings construits sur le campus de la Georgia Tech. Depuis la destruction de l'atelier en 1892 après un incendie dévastateur, la Tech Tower jouit de la distinction d'être la plus ancienne structure sur le campus de Georgia Tech. La Tech Tower tire son surnom d'une tour de 7 étages dominant la façade et visible de plusieurs endroits du campus et des environs. Le mot TECH est éclairé et est présent sur les quatre faces du sommet de la tour. Un certain nombre de fois, des étudiants de Georgia Tech ont osé accomplir la tâche ardue de voler la lettre 'T' de l'un de ces 4 signes, une supposée blague maintenant strictement interdite par les administrateurs du campus.

  • The Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building, commonly known as Tech Tower, is a historic building and focal point of the central campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, Georgia, US. Located at 225 North Avenue NW in Midtown Atlanta, it was erected in 1888 as the Academic Building, with classrooms to complement the hands-on training in the adjacent shop building. It was the second edifice completed on the Georgia Tech campus and it is the oldest surviving one. Tech Tower has achieved local, cultural, and historical significance. Monuments and plaques commemorating philanthropy towards Georgia Tech adorn the building and surrounding landscape. The red brick, Victorian-style building is the architectural anchor of the Georgia Institute of Technology Historic District, a landmark of tradition and school spirit, and the present-day administrative hub of the Institute. It has been the site of many ceremonies and important events, including a visit by U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and its dedication in honor of Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans, "Tech's greatest benefactor." Lighted signs spelling TECH hang on each of the four sides of the seven-story central tower, dominating the building's facade and visible from many parts of the Georgia Tech campus and surrounding area. Georgia Tech students have several times stolen the letter 'T' from one of these signs, a prank once tolerated but now strictly forbidden. (en)
