AIA Philadelphia

An interactive parklet offered Philadelphians and architects from around the country a colorful music making experience, with bubble blowing powered by bicycle! This prize-winning installation was part of a pop up design competition that took place during the American Institute of Architects’ national convention in Philadelphia in May 2016. PlayCycle showcased Philadelphia’s innovative use of the public realm and the possibilities for play space within the city.
