At the Corcoran School, the Flagg Building is one of our homes on campus. The Beaux Arts building on 17th Street, three blocks from the original Renwick gallery, dates back to 1897. The first phase of renovations to the historic Flagg Building were completed in the spring of 2018. The main offices for the Corcoran School, the Interior Architecture, Design and Studio Arts degrees are located in the "Administrative Offices" to the left of the South Atrium.
