Peachtree Station

Jeff Garrison, of S.J. Collins Enterprise, came to Innovation Diploma wanting the members to design a pocket park in a Whole Foods development he and his team were building for a Spring 2017 opening. Spending time in the community interviewing users and gaining insights about the preferences and priorities of the intended users, the group ultimately ended up distilling their insights into 5 potential designs and pitching one concrete and clearly constructed Sketchup modeled design to both Jeff Garrison and his landscape architect, Eric Shade. Both were impressed and surprised by the level of detail and sophistication these students presented, and Jeff Garrison made comment that "there were moments when we could tell they treated this design brief like a school project – and it wasn’t until they realized this was not a school project that they hit their stride."
