In collaboration with Parkour Visions, we put together a proposal to turn a site at 19th and Madison (currently an empty lot, that ironically Kevin in our office designed a 4 unit complex for at a prior firm before the economy tanked) into a Parkour Park. Â Parkour Visions, in addition to being a gym (and one of our building's tenants), does training, classes, and preaches the Parkour gospel to the masses. Â If you aren't familiar with Parkour, check this out: video clip 1:
The proposal (found here), is for a Seattle Design Commission competiton called "Holding Pattern"Â to create temporary uses for vacant land spread throughout Â the city, with the goal to activate these urban spaces. Â We'll find out next week if the ParkOurPark is going to get the green light!
