The success of the Civil Rights Movement stems from the emergence of multiple leaders, some less recognized than others, working in concert to attain equality for all. The design draws upon the ideas of multiplicity and aggregation as the impetus to social gathering, pedestrian circulation, programmatic arrangement, and architectural form.
As the main transportation hub of the area, the proposed project encourages pedestrian traffic on multiple levels on the site. The ground level hosts a variety of open and intimate public spaces for neighborhood residents and visitors to gather. This serves as a destination for visitors in the greater Atlanta region, while simultaneously providing public areas and green spaces for residents of Vine City.
