Pilot Parklet 

Rehabilitation and Activation 
FREGUESIA DA MARVILA / LISBOA

Parklet is a strategy to expand public sidewalks in urban areas that lack qualified public spaces, usually applied through  the implementation of a platform in a space that was previously used as a car parking spot. 
 
Rua Poço dos Negros, as many of the arteries of a city consolidated before automobiles, presents itself as too narrow to allow the co-existence of a driveway, parking spots and a comfortable sidewalk. 
 
With the goal of extending the sidewalk and adding urban furniture, Rés do Chão created a pilot parklet, using upcycled materials, that took the place of a parking spot for two weeks.
