Orange glow

As part of Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and SSA 27, the Sunday Play Spot transformed one block of Lincoln Avenue into Lakeview's pop-up pedestrian plaza every Sunday afternoon in September. A temporary, inflatable public space was commissioned to spark a conversation about how to enliven urban spaces while providing a moment of whimsy and delight. The voluptuous shape invites people to venture inside and explore a world of orange monochrome.
