Groundbreakers

Park Center at Central Perimeter

The old model for suburban Atlanta office space: sprawling campuses with mid-rise buildings, decorative mini parks (fountains and duck ponds, few sidewalks), and lots and lots of parking spots.

Georgia State’s Planning Atlanta

At first glance, Georgia State University’s Planning Atlanta: A New City in the Making, 1930s–1990s may appear a purely academic project, but the website is a treasure trove for neighborhood activists.
SCADpad

SCADpad

Can you live—and live well—in a home the size of a parking space? That question was posed to faculty, staff, and students at the Savannah College of Art and Design, not as an intellectual thought experiment but as a living laboratory known as SCADpad.
Groundbreakers
