Most of the site benches and chairs are made from wood and steel. Instead of finding a large manufacturing company to produce them, the table & planter proposal suggests to open a craftsman workshop 1.5’ - a social entrepreneurship program.

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.

Pole Sharing 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 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.

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. The project focuses on enhancing the living quality of blocks with bird-friendly vegetated habitats and site-specified structures that provide safe communal areas for residents.
