Park[ing] Day 2015

Parking Day Concept Idea

RogueHAA’s installation for Parking Day 2015 had two goals – first, to create a usable public amenity through the reclamation of vehicular real estate, and second to interject a bit of soft, green surfacing into the hard urban landscape. The undulating surface of the installation was created by carving block of foam off-site. Painted plywood provided a clean edge around the installation’s perimeter, and sod provided a surface for passerbys to sit and enjoy. The installation was fabricated off-site and assembled in a parking stall on Broadway in less than 20 minutes.

The team received compliments from adjacent businesses on their creativity, and local news took and interest too.

Parking Day 2014

In 2014, RogueHAA participated in Park(ing) Day. This event, started by Rebar in 2005, takes place annually when citizens, artists and activists transform parking spaces into public spaces with the purpose of encouraging debate about how public space is created and allocated.

RogueHAA collaborated with Wayne State University to create a design for a single parking space which was flexible enough to meet the programming needs of multiple university organizations throughout the day. The space was organized through a network of adaptable modules which could be utilized as a bench or table, depending on their orientation. This allowed the space to adapt different uses.

RogueHAA constructed and installed the modules with the help of volunteers. After the event was over, the modules were donated to The Alley Project, a youth support organization teaching kids how to market their artistic abilities.
