PARK(ing) Day 2017

PARK(ing) Day - September 15 - Firms and Individuals Invited to Participate!

ASLA-MN is organizing Park[ing] day 2017 in the Northloop. We are taking over a full block to convert up to 8 parking stalls into continuous parklets to demonstrate the importance of Landscape Architecture and the power of green space in Urban Areas!  

Join as an office/organization, professional, or student!

On August 2 we held a very successful collective design charette at Perkins+Will.   We are holding a follow-up meeting to present a final concept that combines ideas from the charette.  Together we'll finalize the materials, create a schedule, and divvy up tasks. After this meeting there's only one month left until the real Park(ing) Day on September 15.

Everyone is welcome, and participation in the first charette is not required!  Snacks, beverages, and craft beer will be served!

Help us plan by signing up on Facebook!
