Visit to Georgia Tech

Recently, I visited the Georgia Tech campus to see what our Architectural Studio students were up to. I was amazed at their vision of agriculture and their ideas for a new peanut education and promotion center for the Commission.

They all felt that we need a demonstration area to grow the different crops so visitors can better grasp the depth of Agriculture in Georgia. They all have a vision of a technologically advanced facility and frankly location.

They have looked at "green" construction which improves energy consumption and is friendly to the environment. They even studied a building in Gwinette County which has grass growing on the roof and the medium the grass grows on is a mixture of ground peanut shells and treated sewage sludge.

We should see some interesting final concepts in December.
