FTLA will celebrate its third consecutive PARK(ing) Day installation on September 16, 2011. FTLA’s PARK(ing) Day installation will transform three downtown metered parking spaces into temporary green spaces in front of the firm’s downtown office at 306 W. Franklin Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a cooking demonstration by Patchwork Catering at 12 p.m. This year, FTLA’s team of landscape architects is excited to convert the space into a lush urban garden designed to showcase sustainable food preparation using local, seasonal ingredients. PARK(ing) Day began in 2005 when art and design studio Rebar converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco to challenge people to rethink the way streets are used and reinforce the need for broad-based changes to urban infrastructure. Since then, it has grown to include more than 800 “PARK” installations in 180 cities on six continents.
