The Dalles Pocket Park / E. 2nd & Washington
A pro bono project we are involved with, currently on the boards, computer screens, and scraps of paper on my coffee table. A small outside corner of an existing parking lot, directly across the street from the Granada Theater, was gifted to the city for a new little pocket park. We love to do these small outside projects so we jumped right in to help out. One of the first things we thought of in discussion of this pocket park, was your hand. A cupped hand, nurturing and containing.
Identity and containment, drove this simple approach to this small parcel of land. A 3 piece house of cards, weathering steel panels in this case, define the boundaries and identity of this new spot. A spot to meet, watch, and play.
