(P)LOT: Proposition I
"Contrary to the common procedure of using municipal parking spaces as storage surfaces for vehicles, (P)LOT proposes the rental of these parcels of land for alternative purposes. The acquisition of municipal permits and simple payment of parking meters could enable citizens to, for example, establish temporary encampments or use the leased ground for different kinds of activities, such as temporary gardens, outdoor dining, game playing, etc.â€
"P)LOT questions the occupation and dedication of public space and encourages reconsiderations of â€œlegitimateâ€ participation in city life".
