After having a talk to the owner of the book store in downtown Greensboro, scuppernong, I got a better understanding on what exactly I wanted the parklet to be or the purpose of the parklet itself. One thing that the owner kept repeating and kept making it clear was the word embraces and I got a sense that the he was a very humble person and he viewed everybody as an equal person. The community was important to him. So taking in consideration of that I wanted to come up with a concept that would show two different things joining together to make one whole community. The Yin-Yang came into mind and thought it would be perfect. The yin is calm, peaceful, and slow movement representing the parklet. Yang on the other hand is quick movement, strong, and enthusiastic representing downtown. All coming together to create one piece...a community.
