Parklot

Statement: Our concept is an exercise in creative placemaking that investigates the idea of a parklet in a pay lot and the visual intrigue of perspectival anamorphosis. Painted, structural reinforcing rods emerge from an artificial turf prairie as elongated blades of grass. On approach to the property from the north and south, the term “PARK” gradually appears out of a seemingly abstract pattern imprinted on the blades of grass. The term “PARK” is a double entendre: a place to park one’s vehicle and a park to place oneself. Leaning rails encourage stand-up gathering for small collections of people at this popular pedestrian corner, inviting small moments of engagement at an iconic rallying point while the park grass absorbs the functional equipment of the parking lot into an artful composition.
