Located in Cracow, near the Witosa street, pocket park with SEEDiA’s solar benches from CITY series along with trash can is a really important place for us – it is a project thanks to which we can improve the quality of life of citizens. It is one of the so-called Cracovians’ parks, an idea implemented by Mangement of Parks Department.
Nowadays, especially growing agglomerations start to pay even more attention to ecology. The challenge that big cities face is the availability of green spaces for citizens. It is getting more difficult to bring together dense urban development as well as spaces which will give residents the opportunity to rest and connect with nature. The answer to this problem becomes designing so-called pocket parks – gardens with a really small area. Near the Witosa street in Cracow little land and combined with a good idea was enough to create a place which took into account the needs of the local community and changed the aspect of space. The garden combines a tradition of the Japanese style and innovation – thanks to the technology provided by SEEDiA. Benches equipped with photovoltaic panels and USB ports allow charging the phone only thanks to solar energy. And the LED lights on placed on the casing of the trash cans inform with the colour about the level of waste.
Watch our video to see how in real life the pocket park looks like. Piotr Hołubowicz – CEO and co-founder of SEEDiA will talk about the project. Enjoy 🙂
