Students in Montana State University’s College of Agriculture Senior Landscape Design Studio took to the streets Friday in Bozeman to participate in Parking Day. The annual international event is held to create awareness that a public space can be created in many places and that many people can enjoy a small space usually reserved for one vehicle. Landscape design assistant professor Rebekah Van Wieren says the challenge is to create a meaningful space that is quick to construct and encourages the students to interact with users as opposed to a design on paper. This space along College Street features a shade canopy and benches for seating to accommodate several people. According to the Parking Day website, since its creation in 2005, the event has reached 162 cities in 35 countries over six continents.
