We believe that in current society, property is a framework for social, economic, and political rights that are the critical drivers of intergenerational wealth. It is a form of power. Each individual’s social identity is defined by this power hierarchy through ownership in the possession of time and space. Since the 1960s, sports have
caused a new way of land speculation in Atlanta. Atlanta’s political and economic elite have used sports to boost Atlanta’s national/international reputation
as a major and modern city, which would help drive the city’s prospects for business
and economic growth. Much of Atlanta’s history and culture
was sacrificed in the name of the “Sports Spectacle”. Specifically in downtown, the Mercedes Benz Stadium as a sports spectacle is assimilating surrounding neighborhoods and excluding residents of low-income neighborhoods.
Our outlook for a world after the property is that property shouldn’t be a vehicle for individualism that translates into an investment vehicle and wealth-generating commodity. Space is not a zero-sum game where one person’s loss is
another’s gain, nor is it a resource that only one person must use simultaneously. “The spectacle is part of society that gathers all gaze and all focus of consciousness. It is, in fact, fragmented and conveys deceit and false consciousness. ”
