Project II*: Drive-in

*Project I is a shared exercise between all Junior studios, which explores ideas for the intersection of the Atlanta BeltLine and Ponce De Leon Avenue. Project II: Drive-In explores models of contemporary and future farming combined with drive-in typologies within a suburban environment.

Koyaanisqatsi Revisited

A studio on thresholds, connections and literal and figurative bridges between similar and/or
contrasting worlds.

The program ranges from small catalytic proposals at the upper Beltline Park overlooking Ponce
De Leon - to larger interventions including an environmental monitoring and data collector
research center along with educational spaces at the threshold of the Georgia Tech campus at
the North bridge overlooking 75/85, one of the busiest interstates in US.

MULTIMODAL MIXES: ATL 2020+

Charged to develop precise architectural imaginaries for these unprecedented times and beyond, participants in this studio will pull from many references and resources to mix, refine and deliver projects that delineate multimodal destinations for radically flexible spatial futures. The primary mission is to surgically interweave multiple programmatic ambitions into convertible architectural configurations that can support a diverse array of use-case scenarios. While core programs will range from fixed typologies to inherently dynamic themes, the primary intent for MULTIMODAL ATL 2020+ is to construct and configure sites as spatial frameworks for public utility, leisure, action and relief.

EAT, DRINK, & SHARE STORIES

This program combines two existing nonprofit organizations that promote highly social and communal activities—'The Moth’, a sharing venue to promote storytelling and ‘Café Reconcile’, a social outreach program that centers on education and training related to food service. The pandemic that currently oppresses all of us, though seriously threatening, will not last indefinitely. Both projects this term look to its aftermath and a happier future.

Architecture Studio 6

What if we were to acknowledge impermanence as an emblematic condition of buildings, cities, and societies? Would this shift in perspectives bring to our attention issues and possibilities that we typically overlook? Could exploring different kinds of time and duration, rhythms and routines -- daily life, cycles of use, rates of material decay, stylistic currency, economic booms and busts, memory and remembrance -- enrich the design process as well as the design proposals that result?

The two projects this semester call for responses to specific situations that incorporate the special and the everyday, the gamut from the extraordinary to the infraordinary.

Architecture Studio 6

This studio will investigate the ways in which the built environment as social space “reflects the identities, differences, and struggles of gender, class, race, culture and age,” in positive and negative ways.

From their research findings, teams will develop new programs for constructive social change through the design of a new institution for social equity and environmental justice, and related public education and dialogue. In these frameworks, architecture, urbanism and landscape will operate strategically and tactically at the interface of public-, private-, and community-space, including indoor spaces (e.g. reception, exhibition, research), outdoor spaces (e.g. amphitheater, gardens, larger landscape conditions), and in-between spaces furthering the project of social equity and environmental justice.
