Site: Tree Lawns in West Hollywood, CA
Designers: Jeanine Centuori and Sonny Ward, June Street Architecture
As part of West Hollywood’s Tiny Park pilot pocket park program, this project tests the use of marginal tree lawn spaces throughout this city. This temporary installation, sited on a corner adjacent to fast-food restaurants, provides short-term seating and table surfaces. These cubes, reminiscent of children’s blocks, are illustrated with graphics including a chess board, plates, and phrases. These casually-placed elements may be re-positioned as needed. They offer a modest amenity with suggestions for greater impact in the city.
