60th Anniversary Celebration of City Planning Education at Georgia Institute of Technology

This year marks the 60th year of city planning education at Georgia Tech.  We will celebrate this important milestone with events from March 1-3, 2013.  Registration for the event is now closed, but we look forward to seeing all of you who have already registered.

 

Part of this celebration will consist of reflections on changes to planning, its impact on our society, and our alumni’s impact on both. We seek to publicly recognize and learn from not only the cumulative work of alumni as a whole, but also the specific work of individual planning graduates. We propose to recognize our alumni by holding an exhibition, both during and after the Celebration, showing your work over the years since 1952.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time the School has attempted to mount an exhibition of our alumni’s work, showcasing outstanding and exemplary cases of planning work over the past 60 years. This work will first be curated into an exhibition and mounted in the newly renovated Hugh Stubbins Gallery in the East Architecture Building, and later uploaded to the internet as a permanent exhibition of our alumni’s work. All work submitted will be placed in a digital archive – available for all to see – and become an ongoing repository for the creative and analytic work of the School and College
