City/Cité: Walking on Earth: Designing a Metropolitan Trail in Atlanta
October 14 @ 12:20 pm – 1:15 pm
$ 75 (as part of Creative Futures Conference)
This event is part of the Creative Futures Conference
5 days of studio work and field explorations to imagine a metropolitan trail in Atlanta. Along rivers, through forests, from urban farms to cultural venues, across parkways and railway tracks, how do we imagine and design a cultural facility that permeates the city – a trail to connect communities to their territory?
Following this workshop, the Atlanta Metropolitan Trails project team will present their work (design of the path, layouts for a trail, etc.) and open the floor to public conversation about a possible Metropolitan Trail in Atlanta.
Public presentation of the workshop on October 14 at Atlanta Design Festival.
A workshop curated by Paul-Hervé Lavessière (Metropolitan Trails Agency) and Hannah S. Palmer (writer and urbanist, Atlanta) in partnership with the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
Designed in 2015 and first implemented in Chicago and San Francisco, City/Cité is a transatlantic cooperation and exchange program on urban issues and city making, initiated by Villa Albertine. Coming to Atlanta for the second time, City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille 2023 will host discussions and artistic programming that highlight connections in culture, urban development, and society between Atlanta and Marseille.
