This fall, students taking the Tactical Urbanism course offered by the&nbsp;Department of Architecture&nbsp;were tasked with creating a series of so-called &ldquo;urban chairs.&rdquo; The chairs were designed and built by the students with the intent that they can be configured in multiple ways in order to make public spaces more appealing.<br></p> <p>The furniture, dubbed the Morphogenesis Chairs by students, includes six chairs made of birch plywood slats carefully cut on a Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine and painted red and blue. Unlike the benches currently used along sidewalks in major cities across the county, the &ldquo;urban chairs&rdquo; designed by Kennesaw State students are crafted with portability and usability in mind.</p> <p>In September, Zamila Karimi, a lecturer within the&nbsp;College of Architecture and Construction Manag...</p> https://archinect.com/firms/release/150058034/classic-class-a-office-building-the-redevelopment-and-repositioning-of-101-greenwich-street-is-complete/150098241 Classic Class A Office Building : The Redevelopment and Repositioning of 101 Greenwich Street is Complete nharris@madgi.com 2018-11-29T14:19:28-05:00 >2018-11-29T14:19:28-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/06/0655c6542b6045fc94453ef59f86b8c2.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>Montroy DeMarco Architecture has completed the redevelopment of 101 Greenwich Street (formerly known as Two Rector Street) in the Financial District. Built in 1905 and designed by Clinton and Russell for a freight shipping conglomerate, the 26-story, 481,000-square-foot office building has undergone a re-positioning from a Class B to a Class A office tower to attract tenants in TAMI (technology, advertising, media, and information) as well as those from the financial and hospitality sectors. Significant upgrades were made to the property&rsquo;s technology, MEP, and fire alarm systems, as well as its lobby, elevators, and bathrooms. Originally 23 stories&mdash;three floors were added in 1927&mdash;the building&rsquo;s limestone fa&ccedil;ade with terracotta ornamentation has been repaired and restored. The building&rsquo;s public arcade space and lobby, formerly separated by large column enclosures to restrict access to its interior, have been brought back together. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall opens up the arcade, es...</p>
