In the past two months, the tech behemoths Airbnb and Microsoft announced substantial expansions in the city of Atlanta. They are not alone, and it is no coincidence that the city continues to grow as an East Coast tech hub with an abundant skilled workforce and economic incentives. Companies are treating such expansions as flagships and are investing heavily in the facades of the new developments to establish an area-wide presence. Pickard Chilton Associate Deborah Lukan will join David Leonard, Gordon Beckman and Katie Angen for a panel discussion that will examine how architects can harness the incredible potential of this trend and gear their buildings to the specifications of such particular clients.
