Eugene Park Blocks
Eugene, Oregon, United States
THE DESIGN. In LIGHT BOX, people become part of the place-making process through a mechanism that allows them to change the space around them. The design allows visitors to constantly recreate space though movement: passage through the park initiates a cascade of light that ripples across the landscape, constantly changing the visual reality of the space. The programming of the park also seeks to build community through art and economy by providing a plaza for public gatherings and retail space to create a destination node. Taken as a whole, LIGHT BOX seeks to create a place that can constantly be remolded and modified to fit the needs of the people who use it.
