Awarded Undergraduate Grant to build Richmond’s first parklet, Grant

After researching feasible sustainable trends around the major cities in the U.S., this student team encountered an initiative that promotes wellness, sustainability, design, and interaction: temporary recreational areas known as Parklets. Considering that many streets are excessively wide and contain large zones of wasted space, especially at intersections, Parklets have become the solution to this problem. They seek to reclaim some unused swathes and quickly and inexpensively turn them into new public plazas and parks. By taking over two parking spots to create this space, the intent is to encourage people to exercise, have somewhere to sit and relax and enjoy the city around them, especially where narrow sidewalks would otherwise preclude such activities. This project also explores different methods of building and construction while taking into consideration limitations posed by real-world situations.
