On Friday 16th September, the city streets of Adelaide were taken over with park installations left, right and centre! Park(ing) Day 2011 was a roaring success, sparking much interest and topical conversation. There were exercise bikes, pop-up libraries, city gardens and many places to sit, observe and ponder.
The Enoki installation was a whimsical approach to 'park' with the use of an heirloom swing set, a recycled timber canopy branching off a silver birch trunk and handcrafted botanical elements. It was a play on innocence, by gone times and ideal everyday. All materials used were either borrowed or recycled.
A big thanks must go to the co-ordinators of Adelaide Park(ing) Day! And a shout out to the People's Choice Award recipients Woods Bagot and the Social Epi UniSA team for receiving the President's Choice Award. For more info and images check out http://www.adelaideparkingday.com/.
Enoki will again be taking part in Parking Day, happening tomorrow all over the Adelaide CBD. This year's event has more than doubled, with 37 carparks being invaded with pure creativity. Our installation is situated on Rundle Street, so take a break during your day and enjoy the sunshine from under a forest canopy, filled with flowers and cranes and featuring an heirloom swing. See you there!
Recently introduced to Enoki, Desire to Inspire is a charming blog curated by one Canadian and one Australian; both devotees of design. Friend of Enoki, photographer James Knowler, was featured in the blog; including photos of the Collison, Freschi, Brammy Kyprianou and Blair Residence. Take a gander... it's well worth a look!
