Michigan Ave. Parklet

Type: Public Installation 

Client: Human Scale Studio 

Size: 300 SF 

Location: Detroit, MI

Status: Completed

The People First Project is a social and urban design project focused on putting people first by creating walkable spaces that transform into urban hubs for conversation and experience. The Michigan Ave. Parklet became the first in a series of public installations. The project was set in the neighborhood of Corktown on Michigan Avenue carving space out of an existing parking spot and a half that became a location for people to stop and enjoy. The project has been featured on a variety of sites including Next City, Model D, MLive, and Comcast Newsmakers for its innovative design and application. The design of the parklet was based on a series of modular outdoor furniture pieces that can be transformed into several different layouts depending upon allocated space.
