Taking Back the Streets: Caravan by Kevin Van Braak

We do go on about how streets are for people, and love interventions like Rebar's Park(ing) that has become a global phenomenon. Designer Kevin Van Braak beat them by a couple of years with his 2004 instant park, carved out of a caravan, or camper trailer. He stripped an old trailer down to the metal, cut it up, hinged the pieces and and can simply tow it into place, park and unfold it. We need a fleet of these for Park(ing) day.
