Gottfried Norrman (1848-1909) is perhaps one of the most prolific architects you've never heard of. Originally from Sweden, Norrman was one of the South's leading architects, designing many architecturally significant buildings including Morris Brown's Fountain Hall, Ivy Hall in Atlanta, Windsor Hotel in Americus, Anderson Hall and Citizens Bank Building (Propes Hall) at SCAD's Savannah campus, and homes throughout the Southeast. He also designed buildings for Atlanta's Expositions, held in Oglethorpe Park and Piedmont Park in the late 19th century. Sadly in 1909, Norrman, suffering from health issues, committed suicide shortly after the Atlanta firm of Norrman, Hentz, and Reid was formed. He is buried in Atlanta's Oakland Cemetery.
