Atlanta Street Life Painting Remix

Pedestrian life is part of what Atlanta Suburban residents missed out. Pedestrian culture and chance encounters are part of social life. Yale architecture professor Philip Langdon claims that”It is no coincidence that at the moment when the United States has become a predominantly suburban nation, the country has suffered a bitter harvest of individual trauma, family distress and civic decay.”

Atlanta Street Life Painting Remix mashes up paintings of Atlanta in earlier time and Google Earth Street View to give an insight on the change.
