”Parklet’s” are a small urban space which can be considered parks. Usually located in regular vehicle parking spots in strategically placed high pedestrian zones. Their intention is to reclaim green and public spaces for the citizens of cities.
A buffet of ideas for slowing traffic through neighborhoods, including my favorite: parklets. Also, intersections as art, and strategic tree planting to make drivers think they're speeding up. Many great ideas for city planners and neighborhood advocates.
Park(ing) Day on June 5, 2010 in Turin, probably the largest that has ever been done in Europe, is among the events of the Festival Cinemambiente 2010, which was held in conjunction with WED (World Environment Day) 2010. For the occasion, IZMO proposed a space furnished on pallets, used as raw material or new-life reuse (same object with a new function).
