On Friday, September 21, landscape architects and designers around the world participated in the 14th annual PARK(ing) Day to demonstrate the power of public space. PARK(ing) Day helps the public see the difference a designed space, even one as small as a metered parking spot, can make in their community.
The Landscape Architecture Bureau (LAB) in Washington, D.C. gave passersby an opportunity to simply relax and read on a Friday afternoon.
The DLR Group in Sacramento, California, let people use the space to play some classic video games, if they worked for it.
OLIN in Philadelphia created a landscape made of paper for the public to immerse themselves in.
The Kansas State University Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects used their parklet to educate people about the benefits of trees.
Landscape designers at Quackenbush Architects in Columbia, South Carolina, demonstrated what exactly fits in a parking space other than a car.
