a temporary urban park
The initial PARK(ing) intervention occurred on November 16, 2005 from
noon until 2 p.m., without incident or interference from any level of
institutional authority. Sort of makes you wonder what else you can do
in a parking space . . .
Providing temporary public open space in a privatized part of town. One
of the more critical issues facing outdoor urban human habitat is the
increasing paucity of space for humans to rest, relax, or just do nothing.
For example, more than 70% of San Francisco's downtown outdoor space is
dedicated to the private vehicle, while only a fraction of that space is
allocated to the public realm.
Feeding the meter of a parking space enables one to rent precious
downtown real estate, typically on a 1/2 hour to 2 hour basis. What is
the range of possible occupancy activities for this short-term lease?
