Take the Park With You

If you liked Rebar's instant San Francisco park, you will love David Gallaugher's grass-lined wheel. He and three other Dalhousie architecture students built it to make a social statement- we need more green space. Their contraption is a way to "take the park with you" ..."We're looking at the idea of green space in the city," said grad student Kevin James. "Even in the Public Gardens [in Halifax, NS], you're not allowed to walk on the grass." People who were curious enough to ask one of the students what it was all about got slips of paper explaining the students' ideals."They're just really curious about it," said James. "And we get a lot of hamster jokes." ::Daily News via ::Spacing Wire
