Meggie Meidlinger, AIA
Station Soccer is a project that breaks down barriers in our city of Atlanta through sports. Station Soccer envisions soccer fields and community classrooms in metro transit hubs to cultivate healthy communities through sports-based youth development. Each field location draws from the needs of each particular community to come together to play, learn and connect.
Oaks Coffee House
Elizabeth Carroll Glass, AIA
Rardin & Carroll Architects
Oaks Coffee house is situated along a major commuter route to Amazon, VW, and other major industries. The services include a drive-thru, downstairs dining, and venue space for the community. All the profits are distributed to local charities such as local public schools, community kitchens, and shelters. This business model has created a precedent for parachurch ministries around the southeast.
Ronald E. McNair Middle School
Heli Shah, Assoc. AIA
As the first “future-ready” school in Dekalb county, Ronald E. McNair will provide a unique experience for students of this community. The new prototype integrates “21st Century Learning” educational spaces that allow themes of innovation and collaboration to the student learning environments.
Roosevelt Hall Historic Renovation
Linda Nunnelly and Courtney Harris (headshots forthcoming)
Roosevelt Hall is a 18,000-square-foot, two-story brick building that is the only remaining structure of the former University Homes, the first public housing development in the nation for African Americans. The re-imagined Roosevelt Hall will include a first floor community meeting space; a library, lifelong learning center, and computer center; and retail space. An exciting rooftop deck with amenities and redesign of the greenspace behind the building will enhance the appeal of this building for special events.
