Design Competition Unveils New Play Structure in Woodruff Park
On Tuesday, July 17, 2012, Mayor Kasim Reed and community members gathered at the Northwest corner of Woodruff Park to unveil "ATL," the winner of Playable 10, an international design competition co-organized by Georgia Tech Assistant Professor Claudia Rebola with the Atlanta Taskforce on Play.
The winning designer was Canadian Jeff Santos, a gaming and app designer. His "ATL" play structure features a wheelchair accessible transfer station, a squiggly climber, multiple play panels, the treehouse-inspired climbing "T", the "L" slide and other quirks. The materials used to manufacture the structure are all recycled and made in America.
The one-of-a-kind design makes it perfect for such a unique site where kids, young tourists, college students, and local office workers are expected to enjoy its many playful components.
