2nd Stop: Peachtree Center Station - exiting the trains, attendees are wowed by the exposed rock walls of the platform before heading up the world's tallest escalator. The firm Toombs, Amisano, Wells designed the station, which was completed in 1982. Back on the street, introductions are made to our very own (and potentially endangered) Breuer Library, as well as the collection of Portman buildings comprising Peachtree Center.
3rd Stop: North Avenue Station - the third and final stop brings attendees to the artful North Avenue station, designed by Jova, Daniels, Busby and completed in 1981, and above ground to view several more fine examples of Modernism, including another Jova Daniels Busby design: the 1968 Life of Georgia Building.
We look forward to expanding this tour with more stations and offering it again for next year's Phoenix Flies. But before that, we will be offering our annual docomomo tour in October. Stay tuned!
