Park(ing) Day Idea: The Unfolding Caravan

TreeHugger directs our attention to this installation by Dutch artist Kevin Van Braak. Called "Caravan," it was made by carving up a camper trailer and outfitting it with the trappings of a mini-park. The whole thing can fold back up and be towed around. If you can haul it by bike, Caravan looks like it would fit right in to a Park(ing) spot September 19 (okay, maybe not an exact fit, but the hinges should solve that).

By the way, the deadline to submit an idea for a Park(ing) Day 2008 space is this Friday. Have you applied yet? In Brooklyn, it looks like Ikea is all set to go with their Park(ing) Day installation…
