PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event taking place every third Friday in September. This year, the AIASF Mentorship Committee encourages artists, designers, construction industry members, students and activists to set up installations on metered parking spots. The project began in 2005 by Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio. Since then, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world. On this day citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.
This year, we have some exciting installations in the making. We made a map to help you plan your day and check them out on Friday September 20th.

The AIASF Mentorship Committee and Mentorship Groups are making our own installation in front of AIASF office. Park Chair is a
merge of collaboration between architects, artists, musicians, and yogis, from The Three Inch Chair to Social Seesaw to drawing on the 44’ canvas.

This year at Alleyways Alive, installation works or art including the Polk Alleyways Rocker from Parking day 2018, will make a return to lineup side-by-side with other dynamic furnishings, prototypes, and installations to activate this unique and exemplary public space. The Lower Polk Neighbors, Lower Polk Community Benefit District, and INTERSTICE Architects come together to promote clean and safe public spaces, neighborhood connections, and collaborative urban design, in this transformative event celebrating their positive history of urban interventions - taking the inspiration of PARK(ing) Day to another scale ... and into the night!
