Parking Spots Converted to Grassy Lounge in Rosslyn

For today only, Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd) has converted two street parking spaces into a small urban oasis of grass and modern designer furniture.

The outdoor installation is Arlington’s entry into Park(ing) Day, “an annual, worldwide event that invites citizens everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good.” A sign posted on the sidewalk invites passersby to “relax, hang, be Zen.”

Despite the chilly weather, a few people have taken refuge in the space, which was designed by Apartment Zero, a “multi-disciplinary design and curatorial studio.”

Between 5:00 and 6:30 tonight the dance company Dance Exchange will perform “a site-specific version of their dance work, Hammock” in the space. Find out more information about the performance from our previous article on the event.
