The Dalles Pocket Park / E. 2nd & Washington
A small outside corner of an existing parking lot, directly across the street from the Granada Theater in the Dalles, was gifted to the city for a new little pocket park. We love to do these small outside projects so we cannonballed right in to assist. Our concept, the idea driving the forms, was that of ones hand, somewhat cupped as they might be when in your pants pocket. Comfortable and contained.
The park, it’s forms that define it, a 3 piece house of weatheirng steel panels, is itself a piece of art, a sculpture.
