Cities are laboratories for planning and development, but all too often the only people able to experiment with how to make things better are city officials.
Last May, the City of Atlanta sought to change that with the opening of the Atlanta City Studio at Ponce City Market.
The pop-up collaborative design storefront hosted an array of events as part of its mission to serve as “an incubator, workspace and meeting place for residents, visitors, design professionals and curious urbanists to connect.”
By all accounts, the venue has been a major success, allowing citizens to take part in changes that are reshaping the city.
While all good things must come to an end, thankfully the City Studio is not closing, but instead relocating to engage more Atlantans.
According to CBS46, the City Studio will move next month to Cascade Heights in Southwest Atlanta. It’ll take space in The Point at Cascade redevelopment in the heart of the neighbor, which is undergoing a buildout now.
Until then, Atlantans can still visit the Ponce City Market studio and participate in events like “Design over Donuts.”
