Intectural is excited to be part of PARK(ing) Day 2012. PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks.
Two metered spaces outside of the Zeitgeist Arts Building were made into a temporary miniature park as part of PARK(ing) Day, a national event designed to bring attention to issues of urban living. Loll Design and Intectural will roll out artificial grass and decking, as well as some of Loll Design’s furniture for the day, and they’re inviting people to stop by for a sit.
Andersonville Parklet is Chicago’s first parking space park, or “people space” as they’re calling it, and hopefully the first of many. The urban oasis took over two parking spaces at Clark and Farragut and will serve as a green retreat in the dense commercial district of Andersonville. The parklet’s features were fabricated by Demeter Millwork and clad with Metem recycled HDPE panels from Intectural.
