Can You Parallel Park Your Garden?
February 8, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Creative minds are challenged to think inside of the urban parking spot in the Public Design Festival’s international Duepercinque contest during the forthcoming Milan Salone Internazionale del Mobile, April 13-18.
Installations, communication projects, services for the city, actions, urban furniture items, as well as performances can be submitted as long as they fit into an urban 2 x 5 meter parking space.
The subject of the competition is the creative transformation of public space, considered important in the advancement of urban quality of life. As the competition organizers explain, “public space is a place for personal expression, social interaction and connection, where people get together to exchange ideas, integrate and experiment. Public spaces are where we build a sense of community.”
Submissions are welcomed from those over 18 years old with an interest in art and design and from communications students, academics, and professionals. Proposals must be received by February 10 and winners will be announced March 15, 2010. For further information:
