Plusurbia’s solution for a low-cost, high-impact urban oasis, The Trailer Parklet, was open to the public on Friday September 21 on NE 3rd Avenue and NE 1st Street in Downtown Miami for Park(ing) Day Miami.
PARK(ing) Day Miami turns metered parking spots into temporary mini-parks and fun public spaces for people.
While legislation to regulate parklets in Miami is still being ironed out, the innovative studio brainstormed ways of making a demonstration parklet that didn’t need a permanent location. The studio has designed and built a 70 SF parklet on wheels – a tiny park that fits into no more than two parking spaces.
The Tropical Trailer Park will move to different locations, many lacking open space, to inspire people to find ways of making their neighborhood more livable. This Do It Yourself method of providing open space where none exists provides a quick solution to areas starved for civic amenities.
