By using materials found on-site, this design’s purpose is to heal an injured area in downtown Athens. A focal point is created that features a stormwater treatment center as well as shaded seating.

Stormwater management The injury to the space located on Washington Street in downtown Athens, GA is a disconnect between two parking lots. Originally a planter existed between the two lots, however, the wall has crumbled and the soil has washed from the bed. By using old curbs from unused parking spaces, a connecting wall can be rebuilt. This will allow for a retention area to be created. Stormwater can now be collected from the two lots. During a rain event and after treatment, water is visible running from the wall into the adjoining drain.

Club Drive Park

Designed to create spaces that encourage social connections across multiple demographics, this park aims to foster a sense of community among its users. Multiple functions are used to establish a park that can feature a variety of programs and appeal to visitors of all ages in order to bring local citizens together.

Conference Center and Retreat This plan establishes a resort and conference facility to be added onto an existing summer youth camp in Penfield, GA. With space for approximately 100 people, the design engages visitors with nature while protecting essential natural systems and habitats.

Suitability Analysis When conducting the suitability analysis for the conference center, four necessary characteristics were determined. The site must not have slopes exceeding five percent, it must have well drained soils, the vegetation must be open pasture or early successional species, and the site must be located outside of the flood plain.

Conservation Analysis Unlike the suitability analysis, which was used to determine the most appropriate areas for development, the conservation analysis was used to locate those areas to leave untouched. Features identified for protection were mature forests, degraded slopes, land within the floodplain, and essential nutrient pathways. The ecological importance of these areas, along with their fragile nature requires them to remain undeveloped.

Overlay Composition After reviewing the suitability and conservation analysis separately, the two results were combined. The areas with the most overlapping layers were selected as either most suitable or most critical. These two were studied together and it became evident that the area most suitable for development and least harmful to the conservation efforts of the site is the area shown in blue, above.

Crown Mill Park

The historic Crown Mill located in Dalton, GA currently sits in the path of a proposed greenway that will soon run throughout the city. This plan will connect the greenway and adjacent neighborhoods with Crown Mill and celebrate the city’s past while allowing for a promising future. The fact that the surrounding neighborhood has been rezoned as an arts, culture, and historic district makes Crown Mill Park the perfect place for local craftsmen to have a space to showcase their talents. Also, due to the industrial zone to the east of the proposed park space, stormwater issues within the park offer an opportunity to teach visitors about modern management practices used to treat and mitigate stormwater runoff.

History + art + ecology The elevated boardwalk protects old-growth hardwoods while its layout references the original railway that traveled through the site. While viewing art installed by local sculptors, park visitors are introduced to the bioretention terraces that treat stormwater runoff from an adjacent industrial zone.
