These are images of (POP)culture, a small shade canopy built by students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Architecture. The pavilion was designed as part of PARK(ing) day, which an an”annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places.” (POP)culture is based on a fairly simple idea to transform the trash of a caffeine-fueled architecture studio into a canopy, but it’s surprising to see this would-be trash take on the appearance of a maleable field of colorful flowers.
