Tiled alleyway


The intent of the project was to revitalize a neglected alleyway while transforming it into an urban playscape. Benches grow out of the rubber wall-tiling and can be repositioned or removed. Using re-cycled tire by-product(from a local tire recycling plant) and OSB wood sheets, the installation suggests a strategy of how we could rehabilitate bits of the public domain to grow an urban environment that is more sustainable to those living in it.
