Back to School

So it seems to be that time of year again so I thought it would be appropriate to tell you all about a University project that MWDA worked on. It has officially been a year since we completed this job and it was so much fun! We were responsible for the public spaces at Kennesaw State University's new freshman housing building (if you are driving up 75 North out of Atlanta you can see it from the freeway....it looks great at night, you'll see why!) This was the first educational project we had ever worked on and it was such a great learning experience and a ton of fun. We were lucky enough to receive at Project of Distinction Award by College Planning & Management Magazine and we worked with an amazing team. Here are some photos to get you in the scholastic mood!

This is fabulous! When you mentioned this the other day, I had no idea of the scope of the project. I am thrilled by its simplicity, its modernity, and its sense of fun. Wonderful!

I agree with Blue. This is simply amazing! Things weren't like this when I was in school - mainly because nobody had any VISION. You guys have in spades! Congrats on the award too.
