De-Code/Re-Code Atlanta

"De-Code/Re-Code Atlanta" creates a public space on the site of a former traffic island in the heart of downtown Atlanta, while reclaiming the history of the place. Through both language and design, the installation weaves together a narrative of the viaduct "gulch area" and its inhabitants, past and present. The site includes seating, overhead shade devices, lighting, and planting — all helping to accommodate a wide range of public activity. Located at the intersection of Central Avenue and Decatur Street, it also serves as the southwest gateway to the Georgia State University Urban Campus.
