5 March through 20 March, 2016 the Atlanta Preservation Center will be hosting their 13th annual Phoenix Flies event.
"Atlanta’s historic built environment of buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods is an integral part of the City’s culture and economy. The Phoenix Flies Celebration provides an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and strengthen these assets to the benefit of all."
This year the Georgia Chapter of Docomomo US will be hosting several tours of MARTA stations. Tours will be held on Saturday March 5th and Saturday March 19th, both beginning at 10am and running about an hour and a half. Tours will begin at the Forsyth Street entrance to the Five Points station.
If you would like to volunteer as a tourguide, researcher, guide editor, or support, please go to our Google Groups page and request to join. We are organizing volunteer efforts through VolunteerSpot and will provide a link through the group page.
We love photographs of interesting expressions of modernism! Especially around the Atlanta area. But we love data even more. Do you have an interest in Modernism, a camera, and the time to do a little research?
We have started developing an interactive map of Modern resources in Georgia and would love to use your contributions.
Imagine how quickly we could build a geolocated database of all of Georgia's Modern standouts. Imagine the benefits of that data. Please help us grow the map of places by taking a photograph and writing a short description and/or history of the place. Please include with submissions the address and current status.
