PARK(ing) Day 2009 Map

This installation will allow the public to construct their own 3-dimensional city based upon situations often times faced by city planners. The public will be asked to pile a series of multi-sized boxes, each representing various land uses and types of resources (X amount of housing units, X amount of office space, etc), onto the tile floor. The purpose of the installation will be to create awareness about the complicated pieces that go into creating a holistic city. It will also encourage the public to think about what type of city they would like to see San Francisco become! We have decided to locate our installation on Gough Street at Market, adjacent to Caffe Trieste.
