Atlanta Hosts Interior Design’s One Night Only
Interior Design gathered 160 members of the South’s design community in Atlanta this week for the latest edition of its One Night Only program, which combines networking and design discovery in a meet-up of creatives and firms in cities across the country.
Hosted at the W Atlanta Downtown, attendees had access to an exclusive preview tour of the Center for Civil and Human Rights with Marc Johnson of HOK (the project’s architect of record) and Barry Richards of Rockwell Group, who designed the museum’s third-level exhibitions on global human rights. Opening to the public on June 23, the building is designed by Phil Freelon, whose Freelon Group recently merged with Perkins + Will. Freelon Group and HOK were finalist in the 2008 competition for the project, winning over designs by Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Polshek Partnership (now Ennead Architecture), among others. Freelon is also the architect of record for Smithsonian’s Museum of African American History and Culture on the Mall in Washington, D.C., scheduled for completion next year.
