Spring 2016: Low – Barrier Homeless Shelter

Spring 2016: Low-Barrier Homeless Shelter

As a Serve-Learn-Sustain public service pathway course, a team of Georgia Tech Building Construction, Architecture, and Planning students worked with HomeAid Atlanta to turn an abandoned warehouse into a low-barrier shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness. This graduate-level course is a cross-disciplinary workshop collaborating with prominent industry partners to research best practices, create architectural drawings, and deliver a program management plan for the project.
