Doxa (R)evolutionary Parks; the future of open space
Rebar’s John Bela was recently in DC to be part of a session organized by the National Endownment for the Arts (NEA), City Parks Alliance, National Capital Planning Commission, and Trust for the National Mall at the National Archives. Jason Shupbach, NEA Director of Design, moderated the panel and led a discussion about new exciting models that can guide the future of public space, including ”evolutionary parks,” which are older spaces that have creatively adapted to new uses, and “revolutionary parks” like parklets, which dramatically diverge from what’s been created before.
