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.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL STUDIO

EXHIBITION OPENS IN ATLANTA

JOIN US IN THE STUBBINS GALLERY TODAY AT 5:30.

This exhibit includes work developed over the past four years, with students problem solving together in a seminar and design studio setting on how to expand 21st century housing options to meet the needs of changing urban demographics, sustainability targets and alternative energy requirements, all through smartly researched and elegantly designed urban housing and public space solutions.

LOCATED IN THE COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE - THE SHOW WILL BE UP THROUGH JANUARY 8TH

The United States Department of Energy reports that our buildings account for forty percent of all energy consumed nationally. Our focus on high performance buildings at the Georgia Tech College of Architecture aims to reduce that percentage and meet the rising demand for design and building performance professionals to evaluate the environmental impact of design decisions. Continuing a twenty-five-year trajectory of research leadership, Tech students and faculty are leading the way in design, and building simulation.
