Atlanta architect Melody Harclerode pens an applause-worthy column for the Saporta Report this week, asking why Atlanta can't foster more great architecture during this "golden opportunity" of corporate relocations and revived economies. Harclerode, the current Atlanta chapter of the American Institute of Architects president, points to examples like the small-scale but incredible Thorncrown Church in Arkansas (pictured here) and asserts, "Great architecture does not need to be immense in size or budget … To the contrary, great architecture can serve the public at a small scale and in modest communities."
