Park[ing] Day Dreams on Brand
Osborn Architects, who promote Green Buildings and LEED certification, turned their parking space into a bucolic pasture with chaise lounges for harried workers to relax in during their hectic day. The whimsical draw were the cows frolicking in the meadow, blown around by the wind so they appeared to be playing.
"Dream(ing) on Brand" is a "radical intervention that represents the potential at hand for quieter, more pastoral encounters with urban public space." This installation, which used minimal materials, is part of the larger event, Park[ing] Day, which converts urban concrete and asphalt into "pocket-parks" to highlight the lack of green space and to encourage more open spaces around the city.
Find them at until 6pm today at 100 N Brand Blvd, Glendale one block up from the Borders Bookstore. Check out the map for more spaces. And you can grab a snack on Ventura Boulevard's "pocket-park"
