ai3 adventures into the Depths of Atlanta's Flatiron Building

Braving the endless, soggy weather in Atlanta, our studio ventured downtown yesterday for a tour of the historic Flatiron Building. 

Dan, Jason & Amy have been working on the renovation project for months now, and we finally took a break together to get down to the site and view the many textures and stories ourselves.
