A Progressive Addition to FDR's Legacy in Warm Springs, Courtesy of Atlanta Architects

The Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute is a legacy of our 32nd President and the 41 visits he made over 20 years to Warm Springs seeking relief from the rigors of polio in the area's natural warm springs. The state-owned facility now offers a wide variety of treatments to some 5000 disabled patients a year. Atlanta architects Stanley Beaman & Sears got the commission for the redesign of the Blanchard Hall Outpatient Center, and their striking contemporary work here is notable, especially considering the red brick and white-colonnaded porticos that characterize the rest of the complex.
