STUDENTS FOCUSED ON OPPORTUNITY AND HOUSING IN ATLANTA

Students from the Georgia Tech School of Architecture’s High-Performance Building Design and Research studio are underway in developing a new set of energy-efficient and affordable housing prototypes. 

Design teams are formulating strategies to spur economic development and entrepreneurship in economically challenged neighborhoods.   

Countering the recent trend of demolition and assemblage, our approach preserves the existing neighborhood subdivision while promoting higher density and a mix of uses through text amendments to existing zoning. 

Rethinking the single-family housing model to include opportunities for multiple income streams on a typical 40'x140' parcel, to include commercial, residential uses while encouraging entrepreneurship, even at the smallest level, is our ultimate long term challenge.
