Atlanta City Planning 1950-2000

This image of downtown Atlanta displays the 1996 Summer Olympics and how Atlanta became an international city. Never before had the Olympics been to a southern city and Atlanta wanted to make sure that they did not disappoint. Centennial Park displays just how much Atlanta wanted to show just how much they had changed. With the backdrop of the city, the park creates a jeux du position not only in the larger context of Atlanta and the South, but also in a global context.
