The Blueprints team was asked to examine the 16-mile stretch of Interstate 85 in Troup County, Georgia dedicated to Ray C. Anderson in 2014, in honor of his outstanding achievement and the legacy he left for his hometown of West Point, and for the rest of the world. An interstate highway was used to honor a true environmentalist. But, how can a piece of infrastructure, that is inherently unsustainable and a large catalyst for environmental pollution and degradation, truly begin to commemorate Ray's legacy and his pursuit of sustainability? That question serves as the design challenge presented to the faculty and students in the Georgia Tech Scho0ol of Architecture Design and Research Studio by the Georgia Conservancy and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Instructor was Richard Dagenhart, Professor Emeritus, Georgia Tech. Studio Managers were Elizabeth Ward, Kevin Bacon, Cassie Branum, Ryan Gravel, David Green, and Jeff Williams from Perkins + Will.
