Philip Trammell Shutze 1890-1982  Marker  


A Columbus Native whose birthplace stood close to this site, Shutze became one of the most prominent American architects of the twentieth century. After graduating from the Georgia Institute of Technology and from Columbia University with degrees in Architecture, Shutze studies for several years at the American Academy in Rome, Italy. In the mid-1920´s, as a partner in Atlanta´s premier architectural firm, Shutze began to work on a series of commercial and residential structures that would bring him acclaim from throughout the design world. The Swan (1926), Shutze´s most extraordinary expression of the classical ideal, serves as the headquarters of the Atlanta Historical Society. Shutze is buried in Columbus´s historic Linwood cemetery.
