“Lift” is a modular and re-deployable seating environment that creates
a zone of relaxation and protection through the “virtual” bending of a
grass-filled plane. As the center of the grass plane is bent upward from
a horizontal to vertical position, the interstitial space between “grounds”
transforms into a seating environment while the bending surface
becomes railing, seating, anchoring and enclosure. Like the outer
covers of your bed, the outer surface creates warmth in an otherwise
materially cold environment.
Undulating plantings in this pocket park make it a city favorite.
