Client: Cousins Properties, Inc.
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Lorenc+Yoo was hired to design canopies for a 15-year-old building designed by Philip Johnson in downtown Atlanta. The 191 tower is a 55-story corporate office building in downtown Atlanta, which houses the regional headquarters for Deloitte. The building appears as a Cathedral and, at the time, bore little or no identification of the tenants inside. The firm designed a series of canopies that allow for building identification as well as that of its major anchors. Designers studied the context of the building–its scale, color and classical design.
