ATLANTA: Beyond Bricks & Sticks at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center
Environment

The Museum of Design: Atlanta (MODA) has 'set up shop' at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center to showcase their exhibit ATLANTA: Beyond Bricks & Sticks, an exhibition that will travel to some of the city’s high-profile venues. 

Spotlighting many of the metro area’s outstanding design examples, MODA’s Atlanta: Beyond Bricks & Sticks tells the stories of the people who live, work, learn and play in the city’s sustainable structures.

Exhibit components include an interactive Atlanta Green Map, a “What is Your Carbon Footprint?” quiz, video interviews, an intimate look at student life at Dekalb County’s LEED Silver Certified Arabia Mountain High School and many other features that explain and celebrate green living.

Curation of the exhibition includes a broad spectrum of buildings reflective of the metro area’s commercial and residential projects along with large-scale developments that incorporate environmental features. All of the exhibit’s projects either meet the US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system or the Southeast’s EarthCraft House certification program. The exhibit has been thoughtfully designed with sustainable materials to fit the theme while allowing for the challenges of traveling to the various settings.

The Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center is located at 2020 Clean Water Drive in Buford.
