Galleria Parkway Streetscape
The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre was the first planned Livable Communities Initiative (LCI) installation in the area and was designed as a cultural center for arts, entertainment, businesses, and residences. The Atlanta Regional Commission wanted a landscape design that would serve as the “front door” for the complex along Galleria Parkway, creating pedestrian facilities that connected existing and future developments in a way that unifies the character of the district.
Barge Design Solutions developed a streetscape that addresses future growth for both pedestrians and vehicles. The design included a multi-use trail that ties in with the Cobb County trail system and incorporates artistic influences for the cultural center.
The Barge Factor
This design highlighted the team’s experience in urban and greenway design with a streetscape that connects current and future development and creates a unique experience for pedestrians and vehicles.
