We are excited to announce that GFF’s design for PARK(ing) Day Dallas won a Parkie for Best Use of Space today! Our team worked long hours and braved torrential rain today to make the design a reality. The structure was designed by our awesome team of summer interns, and GFF then partnered with Rogers O’Brien Construction to fabricate and construct it over the last couple of weeks.
PARK(ing) Day is an international celebration of open space, that calls to attention the overwhelming amount of parking in our cities versus public park space. One day a year, PARK(ing) Day turns the tables on this formula by converting parking spaces to parklets through grassroots urbanist interventions.
