Street Art

How fabulous is this open space seating? A couple of San Francisco business owners sponsored the creation of this urban parklet – replacing a couple of street car parks fronting their businesses. Super cool, it provides function for all creatures great and small, with water stations for dogs, tables for humans and a rather stylish parking area for bikes. The design is based on the very undulated San Franciscan street grid. Designed by Interstice Architects

Not quite ‘street’ but definitely art… another take on outdoor seating. This time the design is drawn from geometric shapes found in 2D ceramic patterns throughout architectural history. The installation is made from ceramics, honouring the materials in the original 2D form.
Designed by SO? Architecture and Ideas and commissioned by the Royal Academy of Arts and Turkishceramics to create an installation at the Burlington Gardens in London.
