Happy 62nd Anniversary Liollio!

Happy 62nd Anniversary Liollio Architecture! It was this day, August 1, 1956, in which our founder Demetrios Jimmy Constantine Liollio opened the doors to his own Charleston-based architectural practice, which still thrives today as Liollio Architecture. Notable projects for which he was involved include the Blessed Sacrament Church, Bank in the Oaks on James Island, and the Folly Beach Ocean Plaza.

Like today, August 1, 1956 also fell on a Wednesday and was the 214th day of the year. The next time you can reuse your old 1956 calendar will be in the year 2040. Both calendars will be exactly the same! This is excluding the dates for Easter and other irregular holidays that are based on a lunisolar calendar.
