A First Look at Georgia State’s New Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII)

Yesterday, our entire Foundry 45 team had the great pleasure of participating in the grand opening of the new CMII space at Georgia State University. This interdisciplinary facility in the heart of Downtown Atlanta will provide unique opportunities for research, for learning, and for collaborative work. We wholeheartedly support this major initiative of Georgia State University to support the rapidly growing media industry in the city of Atlanta.

In this quick post, we’d like to share a couple of cool things we saw.



The lobby sports a giant digital screen that can serve various functions for testing, presenting, and building digital creative content.

We really liked the openness of the second floor. It gives you a sense that this space invites collaboration.

We were impressed how this building brings together advanced technology digital and audio production, virtual and augmented reality labs, and media maker and entrepreneurship facilities that support research, experimentation, and creative work.
