Summer Sustainability Track Students Create Sonic Dictionary of the Aural Architecture of the Proctor Creek Greenway

August 6, 2018

This summer, first-year students in the iGniTe Summer Program Sustainability Track who took Dr. Lauren Neefe's ENGL 1102 Architecture, Sound, Sustainability course recorded the sounds of traveling to and walking on the newly completed Proctor Creek Greenway on Atlanta's Westside. The latest portion of the city's renowned infrastructure project, the BeltLine, opened to the public in May 2018 and now confronts the challenge of developing without displacing some of Atlanta's most critically underserved neighborhoods. After studying the Equity Petal of the Living Building Challenge, the students documented the "aural architecture" of their new neighbors' own "living laboratory."
