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.

 

National Memorial for Peace and Justice

The Equal Justice Initiative plans to build a national memorial to victims of lynching in Montgomery, Alabama, which is expected to open in 2018. This memorial project relating to America’s history of racial terror and lynching will become the most ambitious in the nation on this topic. MetalTech-USA is excited to be a part of this incredible project.
