Jennifer LEWIS: “Off With Their Heads! Decapitating Atlanta’s Post-Modern Tops.” How can we imagine a new urbanism in Atlanta? Currently the skyline is dominated by exclusive post-modern capped skyscrapers with a failed aim to distinguish themselves and promote an identity for the city. “Off With Their Heads!” is a drastic snipping of the post-modern tops across the city beginning in Midtown. New nonexclusive public spaces will occupy the top floors and allow tourists and native Atlantans to regain control of the city’s skyline.
