Georgia Tech Goes to Brooklyn
March 5, 2014
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! The blizzard down south may have postponed the Georgia Tech School of Architecture students’ initial plans for a field trip back in January, but nothing could stop them from making it to NYC this time!
Led by professor Michael Gamble, the studio of grad students toured real urban dwellings, pre-fab housing and an architecture firm in Brooklyn last week.
Last stop? A brisk stroll to DUMBO to visit nArchitects (winner won the Bloomberg administration’s adAPT competition for the My Micro project). No photos allowed due to top secret (and fabulous) architecture plans… but we got an exclusive peek!
A big thank you to everyone that made this trip a success — especially the teams at Navy Green Supportive Housing Building designed by Curtis + Ginsberg, Capsys, nArchitects, and CHPC for going above and beyond! Plus a special thanks to Diana Budds of Dwell Magazine and Tricia Napor of Alcoa Foundation for their support.
