 PARK(ing) DAY IS SEPTEMBER 20, 2019 

What is PARK(Ing) Day

 

In urban centers around the world, inexpensive curbside parking results in increased traffic, wasted fuel and more pollution. The strategies and values that generate these conditions are no longer sustainable, nor do they promote a healthy, vibrant urban human habitat.1 It’s time to rethink the way streets are used and to re-imagine the possibilities of the urban landscape! A metered parking spot is an inexpensive short-term lease for a plot of precious urban real estate. What is the range of possibilities for creativity in a space usually dedicated to the storage of a private vehicle? This project now occurs annually in hundreds of cities in dozens of countries on every permanently-inhabited continent on earth. Rebar invites you to participate. Your installation is limited only by your imagination—and the future of this grassroots movement is in your hands. While this is a heartening trend, there is still much work to do. It is still, in large part, up to us—the artists and designers, the activists and urbanists—to take action, to demonstrate the vast possibility embedded in every metered rectangle of asphalt, to help our cities become healthier, more comfortable, more creative and more successful outdoor human habitat . . . at least until the meter runs out.
