PARK TO PARK

Park to Park is a project which blends low cost strategies and the utilization of unusable cityscape in order to promote the city’s future urban regeneration.   

Park to park idea is based on the city’s constant need for mature trees as necessary parts of it’s future urban regeneration schemes. The city’s future always demands the presence of mature trees making urban regenerations an even more expensive prospect.  

Park to park project proposes to confront the cost of the future by turning it into an advantage of the city today.

The proposition dictates the creation of a network of urban tree nurseries situated in areas which at the moment are empty of any function.

In those nurseries young trees will be left to mature after they have been purchased cheaply,  keeping the plantation cost low.

This network will eventually supply the future regeneration with low cost mature trees.  

The tree nursery consists of low cost boxes made out of wooden pallets.

The maturing box will eventually be used as transportation container.   

The result of this process is a park organized in wooden boxes where trees grow waiting to be transported to their final destination.

By growing it’s own trees the city cuts down the cost of it’s future regeneration. In the mean time while waiting for the trees to mature the city offers us a piece of it’s future today.
