Annual Meeting Proceedings

Author(s): Fenghuan Hong, Thomas Dickinson & Yilun Zha

This project is seeking to change the monotonous scenario of Big-Box urbanism in South Downtown, Atlanta. Due to the trend of increasing suburbanization and disinvestment in downtown area in the last several decades, South Downtown has become a place where no public life and activities ever happen but only low-density development with large area of lifeless parking lot. Currently parking lot makes up near half of total land use and daily parking lot vacancy is more than 30%.
