The center functions as a gallery, event venue, meeting space and information center for the general public about urban design and planning matters.

The Charleston Civic Design Center is home to the Design Division, a part of the City’s Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability. Our current mission is to elevate the dialogue of civic design in the city and facilitate the creation of well-designed places.
The Design Division conducts a variety of urban design, site design, architectural and city planning operations ranging in scope and geographic context. Project deliverables involve internal exploration and analysis drawings for planning and design decision-making, technical writing and graphic design as part of a regulating and/or communication element, presentations to civic groups and City Council, signature Design Division report booklets, and various contributions to small site and master plans. The graphic quality of these deliverables ranges from notational/conceptual to highly-refined plans, sections, diagrams and perspective renderings.

Excellent interns will receive a letter of recommendation from the Director of Civic Design.
