Rice Design Alliance presents PARK(ing) Day 2016
Since 2005, when it was begun by Rebar in San Francisco, PARK(ing) Day has become a global event wherein paid on-street parking spaces are occupied and temporarily transformed into free public spaces. It happens on the third Friday in September in cities all over the world.
Teams will install their parks along the 500 block of McKinney Street, beside City Hall, from 9 am to 3 pm. This event will feature conversations about urbanism, sustainability, land use, greenspaces, mobility, and more.
