PlusUrbia Design’s unique vision to create a parklet out of parking spaces in urban Miami was unveiled Friday September 21 on NE 3rd Avenue and NE 1st Street in Downtown Miami.
The Miami-based studio’s solution for a low-cost, high-impact urban oasis opened to the public and drew elected officials, downtown dwellers, local leaders and a host of curious passersby.
The innovative studio brainstormed ways of making a demonstration parklet that didn’t need a permanent location.
The studio has designed and built a 70 SF parklet on wheels – a tiny park that fits into no more than two parking spaces.
The idea for the Tropical Trailer Park was the winner of the 2016 Miami Foundation Public Space Challenge.
