National Memorial MODA

Until January 20th, the Atlanta International Museum of Art & Design, MODA will have the exhibit “Design for Good: Architecture for Everyone” open to the public.

“This exhibition captures character-driven, real-world stories from across the globe about design that fosters a sense of belonging and dignity. It’s not about designers. It’s about the lives all of us lead, inextricably shaped by the spaces and places we inhabit. For too long design has been seen as a luxury, the province of the rich. That can no longer be acceptable to the design field, nor to those affected by the field, which is to say, absolutely everybody” (www.museumofdesign.org).

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, a project designed by Mass Design Group in partnership with EJI and manufactured by MetalTech-USA has a leading role in the exhibition.

Design for Good “is curated by John Cary, author of the book Design for Good: A New Era of Architecture for Everyone. John is an architect, writer, speaker, and curator focused on design and philanthropy. Consulting principally for TED, he is also an advisor to an array of foundations and nonprofits globally” (MODA).

The MODA is located in 1315 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309.

Weathered Steel

Nestled amid the mountain ridges of Colorado, the Gold Run Circle residence stands apart from other mountain homes due to its unique material palette including weathered steel panels fabricated by MetalTech-USA.

Installed by Pinnacle Mountain Homes of Breckenridge, Colorado, the majority of the home’s façade was clad with beetle kill spruce paired with weathered steel panels to achieve a modern, yet rustic look that both the designer and homeowner desired. The 5,800 square foot residence contains 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in 4,050 square feet of living space.

Bill Aldridge, the owner of Aldridge Design Services, was tasked as the lead designer for the residence. In terms of the façade, Aldridge was to provide a design that allowed the home to blend in with nearby mountain residences while also portraying unique qualities. This was accomplished through the building form and use of materials.

The weathering steel was chosen not only for the intrinsic beauty provided in all seasons but also its durability in extreme climates. “I knew [the metal panels] could protect against the harsh climate that is the Colorado Mountains, without any need for maintenance or refinishing and the patina it’s receiving from the climate is only increasing its beauty,” says Aldridge.

Gold Run residence is clad in 900 square feet of MetalTech-USA’s 22 Gauge Weathering Steel Flatlock Panels. The 18”x24” Rectangular Flatlocks form a grid-like pattern covering the facade of the office and along the base of the home.
