Featured Project Description:
In the years leading up to the Olympics, the Institute began an aggressive building and renovation schedule. Georgia Tech was selected to serve as the Olympic Village as well as the venue for several events during the Centennial Olympic Games in 1996.
In 1994, Tech began constructing a new aquatic facility to host Olympic swimming and diving, while a $12 million renovation prepared Alexander Memorial Coliseum to serve as the venue for Olympic boxing and Paralympic volleyball. After the games, the aquatic center was incorporated into the design of the Student Athletic Complex, now known as the Campus Recreation Complex.
