KoanPARK by Electric Works

130 8th St
San Francisco, CA, 94103 US
By Judith Selby Lang

Inspired by Japanese Zen gardens, the KoanPark in front of Electric Works will be made entirely from recycled materials.

Our garden will be a place for contemplation. Chairs will be available so folks can sit and ponder the everyday reality of the on-going rush of traffic and the proverbial koan:

What is the sound of one car parking?

The bridge constructed from foam packaging from shipping containers for consumer electronics will arch over a blue koi pond made from the New York Times newspaper bags and Nordstorm’s shopping bags.

The ruffle of bright red leaves on the Japanese Maple was once red plastic sheeting that was tied as bows to decorate the holiday trees along the Miracle Mile in San Anselmo.

The white “sand” surrounding the “rocks” is white plastic shopping bags gathered onto mono-filament line.

The “rocks” are black plastic fishing floats that were found washed up on Kehoe Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore.

Downtown is dense, it is meant to be dense, this is what makes it a downtown.

There should be room, however, for people to enjoy their experience downtown.
