Student Housing Business Article: “Georgia Tech Residence Uplifts College Experience Off Campus”

SSOE’s Laura Morton, AIA, NCARB, Senior Architect, recently authored a Student Housing Business article where she details how the COVID-19 pandemic changed the landscape of student housing. As students enjoyed the freedom and comfort of living in a variety of housing options while enrolled in college coursework, a unique new project at Georgia Tech in Atlanta was taking flight. Georgia Tech, with help from SSOE’s designers, incorporated a furnished apartment complex for students directly adjacent to campus yet apart from the university system, reflecting desirable student housing ideals.

Laura, who is based in Atlanta, has an architectural career that spans all phases of the design and construction process with predominant work in commercial, urban development, adaptive reuse, and mixed-use projects. She actively serves the architectural community at a local, regional, and national level—currently serving as the young architects’ representative for AIA Georgia and board secretary for AIA Atlanta, from which she received the 2022 Emerging Professional Award.
