<![CDATA[BLOG: History and Heritage Emerge to Revitalize Downtown Flowery Branch ]]> https://www.clarkpattersonlee.org:443/blog/blog-history-and-heritage-emerge-to-revitalize-downtown-flowery-branch https://www.clarkpattersonlee.org:443/blog/blog-history-and-heritage-emerge-to-revitalize-downtown-flowery-branch Walkability, citizen engagement, and downtown patronage – all qualities that are often desired by any community hoping to attract people and business. As part of an exciting downtown revitalization plan, the City of Flowery Branch recently kicked off a project to do just that, while also reinforcing support for their treasured local farmers and artisans.

CPL was engaged to develop design concepts that would highlight the City’s rich agrarian heritage, meet their goal of providing support for local growers and crafts culture, and help cultivate a regional destination. The vision included a vibrant walkway that would draw patrons to a large market pavilion as well as a flexible-use pocket park.

“The walkway and market designs are more than just an outdoor grocery store and plaza," explained CPL Landscape Architect and Project Manager, Mack Cain, RLA, LEED AP. "Both support a hub of activity that encourages people to come together."

The proposed walkway leads the community to the Market Pavilion through artfully arranged brick pavers, past charming shops and historic structures. Lined with new landscape, as well as tables and chairs for alfresco meals or gathering, it beckons visitors in to gather and socialize.

The Market Pavilion concept features a wooden, open-air structure offering shade as well as lighting and ceiling fans. There is plenty of planned vendor and patron space throughout, and adjacent parking for easy access.


The final component of this revitalization effort includes a versatile, multi-use pocket park. Easily accessed by the public and spanning an entire block in the City’s historic district, the park is adjacent to a popular restaurant and can offer patrons an enjoyable space to wait or linger, in addition to hosting other downtown events.

“We saw the opportunity to transform an unused corner parcel of land across from the City Hall into a flexible city park and arboriculture garden for the community to enjoy,” said CPL Landscape Architect, Joe Powell, RLA. “The park design resonates hospitality and features native plants labeled for educational purposes, as well as an open-air pavilion and outdoor amphitheater.”

The City of Flowery Branch has always embraced its humble farming heritage, while supporting its citizens and modern progress. Plans for revitalization create a vibrant downtown that will draw resident and regional interest. These plans also pay homage to and support the City’s treasured farmers and artisans. Where they once marketed on the City Hall lawn, this group will get to enjoy a modern, attractive, revenue-boosting venue to offer crops and wares among the progress and history of Flowery Branch.

<![CDATA[BLOG: Schools and Designers Press Start to Enrich Learning with eSports]]> https://www.clarkpattersonlee.org:443/blog/blog-schools-and-designers-press-start-to-enrich-learning-with-esports https://www.clarkpattersonlee.org:443/blog/blog-schools-and-designers-press-start-to-enrich-learning-with-esports Over the last few decades, eSports has gained massive, world-wide popularity with both spectators and players. Today, most students are either familiar with or have participated in some type of electronic game competition. This form of competitive play yields surprising benefits and has educators and design teams taking action.

The take-aways from gaming are powerful. Important development and social skills such as collaboration, teamwork, critical decision-making, career readiness, and greater inclusivity are among the many benefits realized by gamers, prompting schools to include some form of gamification in their curriculum.

The most successful designs for electronic gaming are envisioned through a clear understanding of how players fully utilize the space.

The Arena

Large or small, gaming space should reflect an open-concept with unobstructed views of all playing areas. Depending on venue size, group play modules, separate competition modules, associated tiered spectator seating and lounge areas for casual gamers and observers may be needed. If televising, incorporating space for a broadcast booth is also suggested.

Power

Because this sport relies on electricity, all power elements should be robust, dependable, easy to access and fully integrated into design. Floor box receptacles or under-carpet power grids yield the greatest flexibility and eliminate common trip hazards, while providing a clean, desirable aesthetic.

Lighting

Screen glare presents a problem for gamers, making strategic lighting a key design component. While an ambient and dimmable system is most often preferred, should the space need to serve as an additional classroom, the design should include natural light that can be shaded during game time.


Player Health, Comfort and Mobility

To support player health and provide maximum flexibility during game play, a focus on ergonomics within these spaces is critical. For instance, rolling chairs with solid back support and tilting seat pans are designed to move with the player, which can enhance comfort and bolster performance. Additionally, adjusting computer screens to participant eye-level and incorporating large, overhead tally screens can help minimize neck and eye strain.

Make Some Noise

Play and tournaments can be loud and frenetic, which makes acoustic control a must. Specialty treatments like ceiling clouds, wall mounted perforated panels along with textured, resilient flooring help reduce and absorb noise.

Branding 101

Since playing promotes comradery, why not promote school pride, too? Logos and mascots on walls, seating, monitors, broadcast booths, screens, and more, can be purposefully placed to boost competition, identify teams, draw enrollment, and foster unity and spirit.

Electronic gaming offers many of the same advantages as traditional team sports and extra-curricular clubs, with the added benefit of greater inclusivity and world interest. As more schools begin to recognize the benefits of play, we anticipate they will integrate the sport into their curriculum, much like other STEM/STEAM based programs. The value of eSports engagement is clear, and this growing arena welcomes all.
