Beginning in 2005 by a design studio in San Francisco, PARK(ing) Day now is a world-wide event, held always the third Friday in September. That means that this year, PARK(ing) Day is September 16. While your local chapter of the ASLA is not officially sponsoring an installation this year, firms are encouraged to have some fun in the street and tell people about Landscape Architecture.
Sound interesting? Some tips you might consider;
-you will need to get permits from the municipality where you live
-make sure that you connect with the neighboring people and businesses well before the event to make sure they are aware and help allay fears of losing parking spots.
-alert the local ASLA chapter members of your installation so people can visit
-post lots of photos and tag them #ASLAPD16. ASLA will then have a nation-wide contest to crown the favorite professional and student installation.
