          a requiem to vacant buildings

migration series
because you believe in something
OPENING February 12

Interlocking Tower


glo launches our new durational project, because you believe in something, a debate constructed as requiems, moving from one of Atlanta's historic vacant buildings to another. We begin with Interlocking Tower, the gate keeper of Atlanta's grand Terminus Station in Downtown Atlanta. Built in 1905 by architect P. Thornton Marye, Interlocking Tower was used to control all of the switches into Atlanta's grandest station. glo will construct the site as a doc centered space for process, mourning, and fantastical activation, aiming to highlight Atlanta's growing volume of endangered places.  because you believe in something will run through June 2017 at five like-minded spaces, including The Constitution Building and Morris Brown College campus.
