Calgary Parking Authority‘s (CPA) Lot 43 in Inglewood just got a serious makeover. In collaboration with CMLC, the Inglewood BIA and Public City Architecture, it has transformed the space into a multi-use area exploding with colour. There’s seating, a phone charger, a bike pump, a Little Free Library, a basketball hoop (accessible only when the space is rented and closed to vehicles) and even a hand-warming area for when temperatures drop. Public City Architecture, which won an open competition for the contract, took inspiration from park signage for the oversized, vibrant installations. PARK PARK is a two-year pilot project and Lot 43 will still be able accommodate motorists in need of a parking space during peak times. It is also available for event rentals through CPA.
