Finalist, Coxe Park Competition
In January 2015 SALT was invited to submit a design proposal to Coxe Park Competition sponsored by the Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation and Friends of Coxe Park.
Redesign of Coxe Park draws inspiration from Benjamin Franklin s Junto, which assembled a diverse group of people to share ideas, create networks, and promote social action. Community Junto creates a gathering place that encourages neighbors to bond through collective interaction, play and social exchange. Referencing Franklin's legacy of innovation connects the park to the parkway through imaginative reuse of materials, artistry and light, reinventing Coxe Park for the next generation.
