Public Square, 2017
Public Square reclaims road space as useful public space for pedestrians. A range of interlocking plug-and-play modules allows for a range of uses—from retail stands to gardens—enabling cities and communities to reimagine their streets and incrementally transform the city. Replacing just 5% of on-street parking in New York City would add the green space equivalent of one new Central Park. The modules reduce heat retention and storm-water runoff, which is critically important as cities face unprecedented storm events.
