Benches by the Lake

by Arnold Altuna

Location: Bitter Lake Park, Green Lake Park, Gas Works Park

In exploring what micro urbanism was I thought to my self about how much green space is in the urban neighborhoods of Seattle. How these parks in the urban neighborhood support the city in its growth. It provides a place where you can get away from the urban city. I choose benches as my main subject because it was the common connection in built structure that was in all three parks. I wanted to focus on the different uses of the benches. Why are the people in the neighborhood so drawn to these parks? What makes these benches a good sitting space, and how the climate might affect the uses of the benches?

Micro Urbanism

The term “micro-urbanism” describes small-scale urban spaces and design interventions that enable a wide variety of activities, events, processes and functions to take place. It also involves ways to reinterpret the urban landscape. As a class project, the purpose for creating this Guide is to bring attention to aspects of our everyday environment that are important but often neglected parts of the urban experiences.
