From Friday, June 1 through Sunday, June 12, Modern Atlanta (MA) presents the fifth annual Design is Human, a series of events celebrating international design excellence and creative culture.
MA12 features a citywide series of programs that highlights design excellence in many areas of life: architecture, interior design, visual arts and social responsibility.
The event kicks off with a tour of selected modern homes in Athens, then comes back to Atlanta for the Architect Studio Crawl on Friday evening, June 1. A series of designer showroom events will be held on June 5, 6, and 7 at Room & Board, FLOR, and Design Within Reach and Hansgrohe Aquademie.
The Auburn/Edgewood district will become a design destination with the “Bar Alto” by London-based firm DesignMarketo that features a design-meets-drink and Bread Workshop at Space2 from June 7-10.
