The Architect's Newspaper has announced their 2018 Best of Design Award winners, and Marble Fairbanks, founded by the School of Architecture Chair, Scott Marble, won in the Public category for the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
James Cramer, part-time lecturer in the School of Architecture, reflects on George H.W. Bush's contribution to universal design and its impact in the fields of architecture and building construction around the U.S.
Keith Kaseman, assistant professor, and Jonathan Dessi-Olive, Ventulett NEXT Generation Visiting Fellow, along with Master of Architecture students, Daniela Marquez and Joel Jassu, joined over a dozen other experts from around the world in architecture, engineering, drone technology, digital fabrication, and community leadership for a think tank on droneports, a new typology for civic space in East Africa.
SimTigrate Design Lab, the Institute for People and Technology, and other programs and labs across campus will join in the innovative research and therapy program for people with the brain condition.
The College of Design Diversity and Inclusion Council seeks to foster open dialogue within the College. This fall, the Council invited a panel to share their experiences and start a conversation. The panel also answered questions submitted later.
Anna McCuan and Jamieson Pye, juniors in the Bachelor of Science in Architecture program, were shortlisted this summer for their submission in the Land Art Generator Design Competition for Melbourne, Australia. Their project titled, “Sentinel: Marking Energetic Flows Through Time” is a “design that gives back, while also bringing pause for reflection.”
On Tuesday, October 11, 2018, the Georgia Tech Women in Architecture un-veiled "The Veil," a design born on the Georgia Tech campus, fabricated in the Digital Fabrication Lab, and exhibited along the Atlanta Beltline has finally made its way home to Georgia Tech.
Researchers in the School of Architecture at Georgia Tech have partnered with University College Cork (UCC) in the Republic of Ireland, Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) in Northern Ireland, and the City University of New York (CUNY) to develop the science, logistics, and design concepts to re-purpose composite material wind blades. The oldest wind turbine blades are coming out of service now, due either to the end of their fatigue life, or in many cases, functional obsolesce. The wind industry has no means to recycle or reuse the blades or the materials in them. Consequently, by 2050, it is anticipated that 39.8 million tons of these materials will need to be recycled.
The researchers have been working with Emory Brain Health to develop an “Empowerment Program” for people with mild cognitive impairment.
How can we redesign existing cities, their systems, and their policies to address 21st century challenges? To advance understanding and offer inspiration from designers and decision-makers, Mike Messner, alumnus of Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has generously chosen to support a series of public lectures from urban designers, city planners and architects. These public lectures and interviews will be presented by the School of Architecture in the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
