THESIS: The application of selected theories of the Functionalist movement of the early 1920's will produce a more altruistic civic architecture. This program will try to identify the potential issues, solutions and procedure for the development of a mixed use library facility on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Located in north downtown Atlanta, the immediate context consists of campus buildings, neighboring small business and student housing as well as a nearby low-income residential area. The facility will be a 500,000 to 600,000 square foot library that will serve the local population while at the same time remaining a viable research facility for the students and academia of Georgia Tech. While devoting most of its efforts to being an electronically based facility with regard to volumes it will still house over two and one half million traditional books, tapes and videos for both public and academic use.
