How do you move a building across town? Very, very carefully.

Girton Hall was designed by noted architect and UC alumna Julia Morgan.

Pictures provide by UC Berkeley show the complex maneuvering that started Friday to move it from near Memorial Stadium to the UC Botanical Garden in Strawberry Canyon.

The building was taken apart and will eventually be put back together in the next three days.

Girton Hall has a beautiful all-wood interior with a vaulted ceiling and a huge brick fireplace.

What started as a class for female students in 1912 will now be facility for public gatherings.
