Park-in-a-Box

Daytime programs bring life to the underused lot

As part of the LA2050 competition in 2013, SALT partnered with ERW Design to develop a strategy for helping non-profits utilize and activate empty lots in communities where they are working. By creating a series of transformable shipping containers that could be outfitted with supplies ranging from tables and chairs to gardening equipment and sound systems, non-profits could request and quickly deploy equipment and supplies in empty lots to quickly create park-like destinations.
