MANAYUNK PARKLET

2013 | Philadelphia, PA

Working with the Manayunk Development Corporation and a private funder, Re:Vision designed a prototypical Public Parklet (think: park within a parking space) for Main Street Manayunk. The seasonal parklet needed to be modular for easy assembly / disassembly, fully accessible, and be fabricated with easy to procure and inexpensive materials.  The variable height counters allow for sitting or standing, solo enjoyment or small groups.  The playful form and signage slows down vehicles to take a look and pedestrians to take a seat.  Plantings, by Tiny Terra Firma, soften the street edge.
