Portable ParkedBench parklet injects a breath of fresh air in London

Portable ParkedBench parklet injects a breath of fresh air in London

Supported by the Transport for London Future Streets incubator fund, ParkedBench was installed at Tooley Street near the London Bridge, where it was unveiled November 20, 2015. The micro-park is almost entirely constructed from standard scaffolding boards. The sculptural bench zigzags across the space and visually pops out from its surroundings thanks to the painted-red slatted board seating. Geometric galvanized steel plant pots filled with carefully selected plants that mitigate air pollution fit into the gaps. An air quality monitor feeds real-time data to a Kings College London-designed app and website that collects citywide air quality data.
