Pole Sharing

The 6 T-line plazas are potential spaces for outdoor exhibition. Each is spacious with onsite furniture designed to be assembled and arranged to place and install art works. The wide pedestrian zone is also suitable for performing artists. These plazas are venues to showcase emerging artists in Pittsburgh, itinerant exhibitions, and as artmobiles. Street performances are also encouraged on the plaza with simple registration with the local community organizations.

The pole sharing program is a chance to encourage community members to become involved in beautifying the street. People can take a free steel pot and put anything they like into the pot, hanging it on the hangers, which is installed on poles. Sources could be flowers from their own backyard, plants they get from other places, candies or other things to treat the neighbors. Residents can show their creativity and get to know each other better through this program.

Phase II Civic Lots

Multi-Use Plaza @ Boustead St

This phase focuses on transforming vacant lots, billboard lots, and, an existing park, and several parking areas into a string of consistent parklets. These spaces are roughly distributedin three major public districts. Trying to improve the sense of safety in alongstreet spaces, these parklets provide a variety of places for senior people, adults, youth and adolescents to hang out and attend community affairs.

Research & Design: Individual

Urban nest introduces an idea that the urban fabric is the living basis for both human residents and bird residents. The Barcelona blocks in L’Eixample can be regarded as units of constructed nests.
