AIA Tour – Atlanta Marriott Marquis

marriott marquis

ATLANTA - On Saturday, December 12, 2009, the AIA Atlanta Tours committee offers a
lecture and guided tour of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.  Reserve your place by clicking onAIAatlantaTours@gmail.com or through the AIA Atlanta calendar section of the AIA Atlanta website.  The lecture starts at 2 p.m., and tours run continuously from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Lecture and tour are free and open to the public.

Designed by John Portman and Associates in 1985, the Atlanta Marriott Marquis is one of the most recognized buildings in the city.  The building’s iconic feature is its spectacular atrium, which curves gracefully and subtly changes shape as it rises 50 stories above.  In the early 2000′s, tvsdesign (formerly Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates) was tasked with re-inventing the hotel’s public space layout and design.  Here TVS Design’s concept celebrates the atrium by locating a new glass-walled 25,000 S.F. Ballroom on its northern side, and two new restaurants on its southern side.  The project’s signature move, the Pulse Lobby Bar, is located directly in the Atrium Space.  Its sculptural form, derived from the building’s graceful arcs, creates a vibrant atmosphere.  Its central location beckons patrons to enjoy the remarkable atrium space.

About TVS Design
The philosophy at TVS Design is fundamentally rooted in the belief of design, which defines their purpose, their process, and their passion. Within this context, tvsdesign is also highly committed to collaboration, sharing a core belief that multiple insights through careful listening and genuine openness always lead to better outcomes.

AIA Tour – Howard School

howardschoolATLANTA - On Saturday, November 14, 2009, the AIA Atlanta Tours committee offers a lecture and guided tour of the Howard School.  Reserve your place by clicking onAIAatlantaTours@gmail.com or through the AIA Atlanta calendar section of the AIA Atlanta website.  The lecture starts at 2 p.m., and tours run continuously from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Lecture and tour are free and open to the public.

The new campus for the Howard School is located on a 13+ acre parcel adjacent to a former Mill building along a busy rail spur. It is a significant piece of the burgeoning urban redevelopment on the Westside of the city of Atlanta. In relocating its campus, from two historic houses in the established neighborhood of Druid Hills to a transitional Industrial neighborhood, the school took a leap of faith and in turn became pioneers for urban development.

The Howard School is a private K-12 school, which caters to students with auditory, learning and concentration issues. The design for the school’s new campus needed to be reflective of both the neighborhood aesthetic and the school’s unique teaching style. The design focused on five main points of emphasis to enhance learning: Flexibility, Comfort, Contextual, Sustainable and Community.

AIA Tour – Cannon Chapel

Ground was broken for the chapel on August 30, 1979, by President Jimmy Carter. The building was consecrated on September 30, 1981.

AIA Atlanta Tours Visits 1010 Midtown

ATLANTA - On Saturday, October 17, 2009, the AIA Atlanta Tours committee continues the 2009 tour season with a dramatic tour of a high-rise structure on the Peachtree corridor.  Reserve your place by clicking onAIAatlantaTours@gmail.com or through the AIA Atlanta calendar section of the AIA Atlanta website.  The lecture starts at 2 p.m., and tours run continuously from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Lecture and tour are free and open to the public.

1010 Midtown1010 Midtown is a 35-story, 639,000 square foot mixed use development featuring 443 high-rise condominiums and 38,000 square feet of retail and dining space. Here, form follows context, specifically, the prominent curve along this segment of Peachtree between 11th & 12th Streets. The mass of 1010 Midtown gracefully evolves out of, and reflects this bustling vehicular and pedestrian artery from the base of the building to its apex. The building creates a uniquely organic but formal gesture when viewed from the exterior, and a panoramic living environment when viewed from the interior. Moving away from doggedly rectilinear floor plates are an interesting approach resulting in more naturally set forms as opposed to less considerate footprints within the urban landscape. Come see how these formal strategies are reflected upon the design process, execution, and aesthetics.
