Pratt Design Incubator integrates community designs into street-furniture project in Brooklyn

Our member the Pratt Design Incubator is helping a Brooklyn group incorporate community designs into a modular system for protective steel guards around street-trees. The guards in turn support wooden benches, so the effect is to create micro-parks around 50 tree pits along a commercial stretch of Brooklyn’s Myrtle Avenue. For coverage including a photo, see the Fort Greene Local blog of The New York Times. UPDATE: Wall Street Journal coverage, too!
