After the Square
Smorg Square was a hit, but it couldn't last. After the last vendor had packed up, all that was left were a handful of shipping containers, a deck, and an empty site. What to do? Here are a of couple wild ideas.
The square is surrounded by young tech company's office space. What do tech employees need more than anything? No, not another redbull. A nap! This proposal reconfigures the square into a variety of napping possibilities. Hammocks? You bet. Upgrade to a private yurt? Absolutely. Never fear, we can branch out with vendors who offer lockers to keep their belongings safe during their doze, a stand for herbal tea and warm milk, another with eye masks and ear plugs. Everything you need to get a few minutes of shut eye.
Sometimes, it just comes down to the simple joys in life. What's more simple than the wind in your hair and a cheap thrill. This proposal reworks the existing shipping containers into an urban sledding hill. The containers that form the base can offer sleds for rent, hot chocolate, or mulled wine for adults. During the summer, put some wheels on it and you have an excellent soap box track. What hip New Yorker wouldn't love that?
