REBAR: Transforming Parking Space in San Francisco

in Design Labs, Juneau

REBAR, the Juneau Design Lab artists, took on the challenge of public space in San Francisco. One of their solutions was the creation and installation of “parklets” – platforms that transformed parking spaces into a place for pedestrians to meet and hang out. On particular project addressed the crowding concern in front of a sequence of cafes and restaurants, where customers often crowd the narrow sidewalk and occasionally spill into the street.

REBAR’s Blaine Merker described the aesthetic in a story on SF StreetsBlog:

“The idea was to have a magic carpet of bamboo. It creates a sense of prospect and refuge for people who want to inhabit the street.”
