Park(ing) Day is an annual event which occurs worldwide on the third Friday in September to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into temporary public mini parks and gathering places. The mission of Park(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, and to generate critical debate on how urban space is created and allocated for public use.  

 

A group of mixed year UHM architecture students collaboratively designed and built a Parklet out of recycled pallets and PVC parts.  On Friday, 9/16/16 students assembled and installed a system of seating, swings, tables, platforms, planters, and shading on Auahi Street, Kaka‘ako, in front of Paiko.  At the conclusion of the event, the Parklet was disassembled and rebuilt the next day in the School of Architecture courtyard for students to gather for group meetings and to enjoy & relax between classes.
