On the occasion of the 2015 AIA National Convention, “Looking at Atlanta: Architectural Observations and Self-Guided Tours,” a guide to Atlanta’s architecture, offers a broad introduction to the city and metropolitan area as a built place. The book pays particular attention to how Atlanta has evolved over the decades since the 1993 publication of the “AIA Guide to the Architecture of Atlanta” and the AIA National Convention held here two years later. The goal is to highlight local expressions of national issues and trends such as equitable development, connectedness and walkability, and the revival of central cities and urban culture. Features include maps of Atlanta, interviews, photographs and self-guided tours.
