Combining Pavement and Reusable Materials to Make Urban Parks
"San Francisco's 'Pavement to Parks' program creates spaces for people by reclaiming excess roadway, through the use of simple and low-cost design interventions. What's innovative about these parks isn't so much the design as the implementation. As Andres Power, urban designer at the San Francisco Planning Department explains, because there is no structure in place to do something like this 'it fundamentally changes the old impasse of years of planning and just lets the space evolve over time.'"
