Doug Shipman, the Executive Director of Atlanta's new Center for Civil and Human Rights posted the following information to his blog
"It's been a great process-- 700+ people at the public presentations, thousands reading the blog and many posting comments. The jury and the Board of CCHR agreed that Freelon/HOK was the team for the Center. We are thrilled to have them as architectural designers for the project. As you can see-- they provided an iconic design, but as we know designs evolve and improve. "
