Activist Atrium Spaces

Activist Atrium Sections & Callouts

Project Overview

The Statehouse claims to be the House of the people, however, all portions are owned by government entities. There is a desperate need for an area of the building that is owned by the people. The Statehouse welcomes the public to enjoy it daily without space for them to truly occupy. Utilizing the East and West wing of the Statehouse, two proposed atrium spaces are shaped by activism inspired spaces where the people's voices can be heard and projected. Programs include activist art exhibition space, activist educational spaces, and multi-functional flexible meeting areas for activist organization and conversations with the legislature.
