Pop-Up Urban Parks
The Softwalks Project Turns Construction Sites into Parks

Walking around city streets can be overwhelming when you are surrounded by traffic, construction and not a tree in sight, which is where the Softwalks project comes in.

Designed specifically to make public space in cities a more comfortable and more enjoyable setting to be in, this project consists of a kit that allows people to make use out of their surroundings. Take the scaffolding that looms over sidewalks at construction sites for example; you can attach the portable chair to one of the metal posts, add a few of the planters around you and maybe a light reflector if it’s dark and you have a park-like environment to relax in.

The Softwalks project makes outdoor city spaces more pleasant.
