Library Island

Untitled 1 01

Create a mini park for relaxing in the library. Created by Sung Joon Chae and Jinhyun Jun for LTK at Harvard GSD, Fall 2013.


  1. Arrange foam blocks in the size and shape you want. Think about how many people might use the space at once.
  2. For a simple mini park, you might leave a flat topography. If you have tools to cut the material, you might carve out hills and valleys to create a natural spot to sit.
  3. Cover the top of each block with artificial turf.
  4. Set up your park in the library! When needed, clear the space and stack the blocks away.
