Found this project called PARK(ing) by rebargroup. The idea is to create a temporary green space in the urban area by paying for the parking lot fees. I would say its a very nice idea, they’ve claim that 24,000 square-foot-minutes of public open space was created on that day.
PARK(ing) is an investigation into reprogramming a typical unit of private vehicular space by leasing a metered parking spot for public recreational activity. Our goal was to transform a parking spot into a PARK(ing) space, thereby temporarily expanding the public realm and improving the quality of urban human habitat, at least until the meter ran out.
Most Asian countries lack these green lungs that purify our air, and it would be a great idea if local council in Asian countries green their cities.
