Park[ing] Day LA: Sherman Oaks

For their Park[ing] Day LA project, Chattel Architecture, a planning and historic preservation firm, in Sherman Oaks took a spot in front of their Ventura Blvd. office and designed a simplistic homage to landscape architect Thomas Church. "With plot sizes shrinking after WWII, Church recognized the necessity of landscaping for small yards on limited budgets," their sign taped to a parking meter said. "Church designed 2,000 gardens in 40 years of practice."
