A new typology of an urban park is designed at the end of a wide modernist street that brutally terminates by a high concrete acoustic barrier for the crossing freeway.
This kind of "junk" space is quite common along freeways that cross dense urban fabrics. When we saw the dead end sign at the top of the street we thought it's more than a traffic sign it's a statement of no hope.
The project tries to find the potential in this space by creating a new permeable wall with an opening to an uplifting experience for the individuals.
Collaboration of Avi Laiser, an architect with Dana Hirsch, a performance artist.
Presented as part of the Bat-Yam international Biennale of landscape urbanism 2008.
