Event description

Description


You’re invited to join us for the Kickoff of the Ted Turner Drive Resiliency Corridor Challenge. The City of Atlanta in partnership with Central Atlanta Progress, 100 Resilient Cities, and Rebuild by Design is hosting a university student design competition to solicit conceptual design interventions to make the Ted Turner Drive corridor a model of sustainability and resilience that can be replicated with other city infrastructure projects in the future.

The purpose of this event is to kick off the competition with the student teams. In the morning, attendees will learn about theory and practice of urban resilience planning in Atlanta, as well as the history of Ted Turner Drive. The afternoon will feature presentations and a moderated discussion about case studies of innovative urban infrastructure with a focus on transportation, green infrastructure, and urban design.

For more information email Regan Hammond at RRHammond@atlantaga.gov.
