2019 is our 7th year in Atlanta!
In our industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that typically end up in the landfill. So we asked, why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.
For the seventh year, IIDA Georgia partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta. In 2019, our event will take place over two weekends in August. This years dates are as follow: August 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 24th.
Interested in volunteering? We will need lots of helpers on both Fridays and Saturdays!

2019 The Ultimate - Best of the Best
Gensler | Fitzco / Momentum / Weber Shandwick
Three separate buildings pieced together, the revamped interior of a former slaughterhouse is now a multifaceted workplace for three advertising agencies – Fitzco, Momentum, and Weber Shandwick – who came together in one unique space.
In the heart of Atlanta's Stockyards district, the project harmonizes the city's industrial heritage and creative-class leanings. The challenge was to create a multifaceted workplace for three advertising agencies who came together in one unique space - a former slaughterhouse located along the railroad lines. This was an opportunity to rethink the relationship between environment and activity. All three companies are part of a marketing solutions giant and their new home is the first time everyone shares the same space. As they merge under one roof, the need for a smart, efficient layout was paramount. The design team worked with the agencies to create a co-location solution that would increase innovation and opportunities for new synergy without losing the individuality of each.
