News: Sacramento Park(ing) Day
On September 16, Arch Nexus participated in the annual “Sacramento Park(ing) Day” event hosted by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), the theme of which was “play”. Participants in the Park(ing) Day event are challenged to create temporary miniature public parks out of metered parking spaces in the city, promoting dialogue about the use of urban public space while encouraging citizens to consider new ways to utilize public spaces to improve the quality of their environment.
After brainstorming on the theme, Arch Nexus with Clark Sullivan Construction and Green Acres created Zen Beach – an area filled with sand, potted plants, toys, towels and sandcastle building materials for recreation as well as relaxation. The design was created to encourage discovery, imagination and meditation.
