Beautiful Trash Bins

beautifultrashbins

As part of the Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge, the City of Miami has proposed mobile parks which would allow public seating and greenery to be introduced into areas without available land. View and like this idea here.

    Beautiful Trash Bins

    MY IDEA TO IMPROVE THIS PLACE IS…
    Install beautified trash and recycling bins in the Coconut grove neighborhood. This project would have a contest to develop designs for trash and recycling bins in the grove. Trash and recycling bins with the winning designs would be installed in the Grove.

    SO THAT PEOPLE COULD…
    Have a cleaner and more beautiful neighborhood through (1) addition of art on trash and recycling bins and (2) reduction trash in the neighborhood due to increased awareness and use of recycling and trash bins.

We encourage you to participate in the Miami Public Space Challenge by commenting on our idea, commenting on other ideas, or proposing your own ideas.

Mobile Parks

As part of the Miami Foundation’s Public Space Challenge, the City of Miami has proposed mobile parks which would allow public seating and greenery to be introduced into areas without available land.

    MOBILE PARKS

    MY IDEA TO IMPROVE THIS PLACE IS…
    Create portable gardens and parks space housed in dumpster-like containers and place them in street parking/open spaces in areas with limited green spaces such as Wynwood and Downtown. These parks could be built from modified dumpsters, placed in existing parking spaces, and relocated with ease. A similar “parkmobile” program has already been successfully launched in San Francisco.

    SO THAT PEOPLE COULD…
    Enjoy a respite from the more concrete areas or our City. These parks would provide a greening of otherwise barren areas of the City and providing seating. This would allow the creation of public spaces in areas that otherwise would be prohibitive. The use of dumpsters would allow the pop up parks to be readily moved around the City.

You can learn more about mobile parks in other cities here, here, and here. Also, we encourage you to participate in the Miami Public Space Challenge by commenting on our idea, commenting on other ideas, or proposing your own ideas.
