MODA's Atlanta: Beyond Bricks & SticksThe Museum of Design Atlanta’s exhibit, ATLANTA: Beyond Bricks & Sticks, is on display now through July 12 at Lenox Square. Spotlighting many of the metro area’s outstanding design examples, the exhibit 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.


The groundbreaking ATLANTA: Beyond Bricks & Sticks engages and educates viewers with real time information and interactive touch screens to explain just what it means to be “green.” 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 exhibit will be traveling throughout the rest of 2010 and 2011, including Sept. 6 through December at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center.
