Portable park design competition


Transportation Alternatives is requesting submissions for POP.Park, a competition to design a pop-up park for Park(ing) Day in New York City. Since its inception in 2005 by art and design collective Rebar, Park(ing) Day has celebrated pedestrians by transforming parking spaces all over the city into temporary parks. Designs for POP.Park must be portable in a cardboard box, made from recycled or scrap materials, no bigger, when assembled, than 8’x15′  (the size of a regular car parking spot) and cost under $20. Submission deadline is September 1st; on September 18, the winning prototype will be popped up along with Park(ing) Day’s other temporary parks.
