Site #002: Philadelphia’s ‘Game Piece Plaza’ is anything but a winner.

Located next to the architecturally significant Philadelphia City Hall and culturally iconic ‘Love’ sculpture lays the blight urban sprawl, ‘Game Piece Plaza’. This urban void hardly reflects the interesting, creative people that live and work in Philadelphia. Because of this, the spaces is wasted. In an attempt to bring attention to this public art failure and give Center City occupants a desirable public space, I suggest an intervention during PlayPhilly. If we can get the city and its citizens to realize how important successful public spaces are, than maybe our temporary public art or social experiments will lead to more permanent installations. This would improve the experience of Center City and offer outdoor options for people to socialize, eat lunch and relax.
