Welcome to Urban Zen. (Deep breath…ahhhh.)
Today is a special day. Today is National Park(ing) Day! Park(ing) Day is a one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into “Park(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.
For our space we had the great pleasure to collaborate with Berger Partnership.. After some discussion we settled on the very fitting and necessary concept of “Urban Zen”. What exactly defines “Urban Zen”? Our vision incorporates traditional Asian designs and materials paired with more “fast paced” necessities used in an entirely different way.
Rather than drinking the coffee, why not rake coffee beans into cool designs?
Rather than sitting at your desk all day to the point of dry eyes, why not take your lap top and sit in the park?
Rather than tying yourself to the treadmill, why not throw your inhibitions to the wind and practice yoga with our Rain Fitness instructor, Jenniferlyn?
Park(ing) Day allows us to imagine what our lives would be like if we could have more greenscape in urban areas. From what I see from the third floor, life would be pretty great.
