Truck Stop

Challenge: Create a temporary, low-cost, re-usable installation to "jump start" urban revitalization at Edgar Plaza, NYC.

Solution: Casual street dining is formalized into a curated foodie experience. The city's finest street vendors take their coveted seasonal slots at the park, providing a much-needed eclectic dining venue for the business people and residents in and around the Greenwich South area.

The density of the Truck Stop program (6 trucks) is mediated by serpentine bamboo street furniture that zones Edgar Plaza into spaces designated for queuing, seating, and pedestrian through-traffic. The furniture choreographs a streamlined dining experience at pique morning and afternoon hours when the lines are longest and demand for seating is greatest, as well as integrates lighting so as to create an iconic, safe, and inviting park atmosphere in the evenings.
