Calling all architecture buffs, Atlanta history lovers, and those who want to get in on the ground floor (pun intended) of an inaugural Atlanta festival celebrating the built environment.
Open House Atlanta—an event slated to open up more than three dozen, typically off-limits spaces for free tours—is seeking volunteers to assist with day-of events needs on Oct. 21 and 22.
According to a press release, the organization is looking for people to help visitors at sites across Buckhead, Midtown, and downtown. Those who are interested can sign up on the Open House website, and volunteers are invited to a kick-off event tonight at Baltimore Place.
Sites on this year’s list include 100 Peachtree—formerly the Equitable Building—the Flatiron Building, the Odd Fellows Building, the Georgian Terrace, and the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum.
For fans of more modern structures, a slew of recently opened projects, such as YOO on the Park and Hanover East Paces, are also on the list.
Finally, for those curious to check out the professionals driving much of Atlanta’s design, nearly a dozen architecture firms are opening their doors to let the public behold their offices, too.
