Atlanta's new crop of modern residences isn't relegated to hot zones like the Old Fourth Ward. Venturing south of DeKalb Avenue, we find an interesting mix of contemporary architecture sharing streets with historic bungalows and shotgun houses. For the second installment in our Visual Journeys chronicle of modern residences this month, we toured Reynoldstown and Edgewood for architecture that breaks the traditional mold (and which we haven't specifically shot before, as with this 2013 photo essay in the same areas). The changes, in some cases, are quite drastic.
