The Architecture and Design Center Teams up with AIA Georgia, AIA Atlanta and Georgia Tech to Form the Archive Project
The Atlanta based Architecture and Design Center (ADC) has teamed up with the Georgia and Atlanta chapters of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Georgia Institute of Technology to initiate the Regional Archive Program. This comprehensive effort will be supported by the ADC / AIA and managed by the Georgia Tech Archives. All of these groups have realized the pressing need to create an expanded archive of significant architecture and other design documents and objects in order to record the culture and history of architecture and related fields in Georgia. The archive will afford opportunity for research and for the organization of exhibits, lectures and other activities centered around the collection. The ADC/AIA/ Georgia Tech Archives first exhibit will focus on the historic Peachtree Corridor and premiere at the 2015 National AIA Convention taking place in Atlanta in May. More detail on this exhibit will be released soon.
The Architecture and Design Center is the only Atlanta organization dedicated expressly to bringing architecture knowledge to the public with the goal of promoting a better designed and planned built environment.
