Expository Description of Tech Square

Tech Square Tech square, which is located in midtown and opened in 2003, didn’t match my expectations. Based on how it is located in the center of one of the biggest cities in the nation, nothing really excited me. I thought it would be an attraction site for visitors to be at awe, but I can say it was as plain as some suburban avenues. Even on a Saturday evening, activities around the area is low. Streets were mostly vacant, and there were barely any bystander wandering around. It could be due to the fact that the weather was slightly unpleasant, or that there isn’t that much to offer. The infrastructure that could probably catch someone’s eye is the Barnes and Noble building because of it’s glass windows that point in the same direction of the corner of the street. Out of all the blocks in Tech Square, I could say 5th Street by far was the most interesting because of the collection of restaurants they have and that was where the most activity was happening. Walking around Tech Square can be tedious because of the long sidewalk blocks. I’m saying i’m lazy, but it creates a psychological effect that you are not going anywhere further when you notice that you are still walking on the same block for 5 minutes. Another thing i noticed is that bystanders that walk around were predominantly White and Asian. The reason to this could be because of how Tech Square is located near Georgia Tech, and the institutions ethnicity percentage is 58.6% White and 21.7%...

Georgia Tech Global Learning Center

Georgia Tech Global Learning Center I find this building significant for a bystander who is lost, because the way it was designed, it’s easy to distinguish this infrastructure from any other in Tech Square. Without the signs explaining what this building was, i found the design very misleading. When i first looked at it, i assumed it was an entrance to a...

Sound of 5th Street

Even though i said it was the busiest street at that time, it really wasn’t. Only a handful of bystanders were walking( around 15) and few cars were driving ( around 7-12). When you hear in the recording, you are unable to hear conversations unless you are standing right behind a pair or group of people. The loudest thing heard is either the wind or cars passing by....

Barnes and Nobles

Barnes and Nobles This is the Barnes and Noble on 5th Street that I entered to take a break from my observations because of the unpleasant weather for a Saturday afternoon. The way it is placed is well thought of. On both of Barnes and Nobles sides, there are restaurants, and it happens to be placed in the center of the long row of restaurants. This makes it a point you have to pass by to see other options of restaurants. Also it’s modern look makes it appealing to young individuals like...

Restaurants in Tech Square

A narrow view of the Restaurants in Tech Square On the left side of the sidewalk where my back is facing Spring Street and walking along 5th Street, there are a few restaurants to choose from in Tech Square. Examples of places to eat there are Starbucks, Waffle House, The Barrelhouse, and Ray’s New York Pizza. I find it very convenient to place all the restaurants on sidewalk because it is more time efficient than crossing the street to choose what place you want to eat. The downside to the restaurants, in my opinion, is that there should be a larger variety of places to eat....
