About the CoA Research Forum
The College of Architecture in partnership with the Georgia Tech Library and Archives hosts this monthly research series held on the last Thursday of each month during the academic year. In each Forum, a CoA faculty member, research scientist, student, or colleague talks about his/her research. The purpose of the series is to provide an informal forum for members of the Georgia Tech community to present their work, explore ideas, and identify opportunities for collaboration. The talks are free and open to the public, in the Architecture Library from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.
The College of Architecture at Georgia Tech has been a leader in design innovation since 1908. Students, faculty, and researchers in the Schools of Architecture, Building Construction, City and Regional Planning, Industrial Design, and Music work across boundaries to advance knowledge of designed environments at all scales. The College is a cultural center of creativity and progressive thinking, and frequently hosts world-class performances, exhibitions, lectures, and symposiums. A leading producer of research nationally among schools of architecture and the arts, the College houses five interdisciplinary research centers: the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access, the Center for Geographic Information Systems, the Center for Music Technology, the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development, and the Digital Building Laboratory.
