Park Protos

Kevin Sloan Studio has developed several park prototypes that involve systems of trees and pavements. In particular, one genre of park proto pays for itself by merging a tree and plant nursery with public space. The physical character of the space is constantly in flux as trees go out into the community upon sale and are replaced by lines of alternate species.  By cross-programming public space with merchandising, pressures on public agencies are relieved by the prosperity.
