GBBN Architects’ Offices Participate in PARK(ing) Day 2016

In cities around the globe today, artists and citizens will temporarily transform metered parking spaces into public parks and other social spaces, as part of an annual event called "PARK(ing) Day." 

In a cross office collaboration, GBBN Architects’ Cincinnati, Louisville, and Pittsburgh locations are participating in the event. Although all offices collaborated on the overall effort, each location created a different installation and will offer a unique experience to those who stop by. 

PARK(ing) Day is an “open-source” user-generated invention created by independent groups around the globe who adapt the project to champion creative, social or political causes that are relevant to their local urban conditions. In 2005, the first event took place in San Francisco. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat.
