GEORGIA TECH PLANNING'S 60TH ANNIVERSARY

In March of 2013, 175 alumni and friends returned to Georgia Tech to mark the university’s 60th anniversary of city planning education. The weekend began with a Friday reception in Stubbins Gallery, where planning works by alumni and current students were on display. APA President Mitchell Silver, AICP, talked about SCaRP and the broader planning field’s impact on shaping the built environment over the past 60 years.

An exhibition book was created to showcase the creativity and important efforts of many of our graduates over the years. Please visit this link to see the entirety of the publication.
