Parking Lot Island
Public, Spatial Politics
Parking Lot Island is composed of parking lots that exist in New York rearranged to make a topological landscape. The difference in the amount of parks to parking lots leads more and more people to re-inscribed public space for private use. Having daytime use as a temporary car park, the parking lot often achieves the definition of heterotopia by night. Nocturnal activities like tailgate parties occupy and hijack the functionality of space, achieving what most architects dream of - a public space that can contain the habits and desires of its public.
