Trailer Parklet

Project Type: Urban Design
Project Status: Completed
Site Area: 2 parking spaces
Team: Plusurbia Design
Client: The Miami Foundation

PlusUrbia Design’s vision to create a parklet out of parking spaces in Little Havana has been awarded grant funding via the 2016 Public Space Challenge sponsored by the Miami Foundation. The studio’s proposal for a low-cost, high-impact urban oasis was chosen from more than 400 submissions.
Plusurbia’s solution for a low-cost, high-impact urban oasis, The Trailer Parklet, was open to the public on Friday, September 21, on NE 3rd Avenue and NE 1st Street in Downtown Miami for Park(ing) Day Miami.

PARK(ing) Day Miami turns metered parking spots into temporary mini-parks and fun public spaces for people.
While legislation to regulate parklets in Miami is still being ironed out, the innovative studio brainstormed ways of making a demonstration parklet that didn’t need a permanent location. The studio has designed and built a 70 SF parklet on wheels – a tiny park that fits into no more than two parking spaces.
The parklet would be a gift to densely-populated areas, neighborhoods in Miami with one of the country’s lowest indexes of open space per capita.
