Moriarty, Erin. “A Toxic Neighbor at Atlantic Station.” EPA Eyeing Adjacent Land for Superfund Cleanup. Atlanta Business Chronicle, 8 Jan. 2001. Web. 29 Feb. 2016.
Atlantic Station is one of the main attractions in the heart of midtown Atlanta. The beautiful modern space is full of shopping places , fine dining , and space for other attractions such as performances and circuses. Atlantic Station is about 138 acres full of many activities , However the site was not always full of fun and excitement. Before Atlantic Station ,the 138 acres was full of railroads and steels which was called Atlantic Steel. The Atlantic Steel was a large steel company in Atlanta created in 1901 which produced cotton bale ties and barrel hoops. The large steel company gave jobs to many workers in the 1900’s however it produced a lot of pollution. Many workers and residents were moving by the Steel Factory by the thousands (Moriarty). , the residents were affected by the pollution and lead from the railroads. Just across the railroad tracks from where the high-profile Atlantic Station project will rise, lead was smelted and refined for 70 years, leaving lead contamination in some parts of the property that is more than 500 times higher than the regulatory limit (Moriarty). Due to these circumstances , the Environmental Protection Agency was forced to regulate and demolish the the Atlantic steel company and create Atlantic Station to to provide more of a fun place then dangerous.In 1998 , Atlantic Station was built and ready for the tourist to see and for the residents to live by. Since Atlantic Station existence , the midtown population has grown significantly and many people work , eat ,shop ,and live there everyday. The built environments Atlantic Steel ( before ) and Atlantic Station ( after ) has influenced how many people stay in a particular place. These built environments affect where people live because since then Atlantic Station has the most attention and people since it has been created. Built environments can fluctuate the volume of people into a particular space and affect they way they feel about being around certain areas.
“Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site.” National Park Foundation. National Park Foundation, 2012. Web. 23 Feb. 2016.
The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Site was created by Rosa Parks in honor of Martin Luther King. The site is located in downtown Atlanta and its main attraction is to many of tourist locally and nationally. The site covers over 23 acres and also owns Martin Luther King birthplace. Since the popularity has risen from the site the Trust for Public Land purchased five homes on Auburn Ave. The TPL has also purchase more than ten properties for the park since 1990. The expansion of the site relates to how the built environment can control the community and involuntary put barriers on residences. Since the TPL as bough up most of Auburn Avenue , the old residents or any future ones will not be able to live there. This source has brought up the various times that the government or TPL has purchased unnecessary land to build on the site , which inconvenienced many residents to give up there property. This built environment places restrictions on people on which involuntary forces them to move outside of Auburn Avenue because of the TPL possessive intentions.
Busch, Allyson. “A Kingdom Divided: The King Center vs. the MLK Jr. National Historic Site.” Atlanta Magazine 15 Jan. 2015. Print.
This magazine article which was found in Atlanta Magazine depicts the importance of both the king center as well as the historical site of the king family. Every year from January 19th until the 25th, these two locations are flooded with tourists looking to show appreciation to one of the biggest civil rights activist in history. While the historical site gives tourist a first hand look at the King house as well as his resting place. The king center acts a place comprised of various articles and artifacts from MLK’s prime during the Civil Rights Movement. From this article I have gathered that the King center has played a huge part in the growth of this city’s civil rights appreciation. The historical site for MLK is comprised of a 35 acre district as well as the ebenezer church that MLK himself attended. This site has taken shape within the city by giving citizens and tourist a place to show there respects to the King family and indulge in an endless feast of historical information. I chose this source because I felt that it had the largest effect on the people of this city in comparison to my other options. The King Center and historical site has brought together millions of people nationwide to all enact in Showing appreciation to the King family and organization. This source was found in the Atlanta magazine so the biggest flaw was the length of the article. The article was published last January right before MLK day and included pictures as well. The article was also a bit general I’m some aspects pertaining to the contents of the King Center , but what could not be found in this source was located in another. The largest point that binds these sources together are there descriptions of the King Center. The relationship between this source and the others is the fact that they all talk about the importance of the King Center in relation to the information it provides for students, citizens, and tourists.
Eskew, Glenn T. “King Center.” New Georgia Encyclopedia. 10 January 2014. Web. 05 February 2016.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change located in Atlanta Georgia, is a non-profit organization that provides education and relevance to students and tourist about his mission for world peace and equality. The king Center was established in King’s home by his widow , Coretta Scott King in 1968. The King Center gives a visual display of King’s early life , his work through the Civil Rights Movement , and other leaders ( Ghandi and Rosa Parks ) to inspire and educate his philosophy for nonviolence and world peace. This built environment intentionally promotes King’s philosophy on equality by providing a museum , artifacts and original documents to keep his vision alive throughout Atlanta. This source relates to how built environments impacts people physically because it uses the beautiful 23 acre campus, the library , archives , classrooms, and a gift shop in the heart of Atlanta to physically attract people to the site. This source didn’t provide any weakness, because the source is up to date and provides accurate research about the King Center. The relationship that all the sources share is that the King Center uses their built environment to spread the mission and goals of kings works and keeps his legacy relevant and important.
