(PARK)ing Day, Indianapolis

Next Friday, a group known as Architecture for Humanity is hosting  Indianapolis’ version of (PARK)ing Day.  This idea was first noted on this blog back in 2007, and I’ve often wondered if this could ever happen here.  Well, I can wonder no more, as it actually took place last year:

The group ensures that its efforts aren’t temporary.  This year, the group will disassemble the park and rebuild it in the Reagan Park neighborhood at 23rd and Guilford Avenue.  The park will also feature shading material from the RCA Dome in a collaboration with People for Urban Progress.

I plan on attending the PARKing Day event at Borders next Friday.  I’m excited to see what they create this year.
