North Atlanta High School, Atlanta, Georgia Above & Left: Sustainability, through adaptive reuse and reverence to the natural environment, was at the forefront of the North Atlanta High School design. The school was designed to accommodate 2,400 students on what was previously a 56-acre corporate campus. The adaptive reuse design includes an 11-story concrete-framed office tower spanning a scenic lake. Existing impervious parking lots were transformed into quad space, outdoor teaching rooms, gardens and sports facilities for football, baseball, softball and tennis. Removing much of the surface parking allowed the design team to reintroduce natural elements that have been missing for decades. Georgia BioScience Training Center, Social Circle, Georgia Bottom, Left & Right: The Georgia BioScience Training Center is a signature building that declares Georgia's commitment to supporting research, technology transfer and providing the trained workforce critical to bioscience and biomanufacturing operations. Landscape architecture services included layout and design of the central open green space plaza in the center of the building. 122 Landscape Architect and Specifier News 122 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Cooper Carry (Continued from page 121)
