If you’re a fan of William H. Whyte’s pioneering ‘The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces,’ you’ll love this time-lapse of OLIN’s popular Director Park in Portland, OR. Filmed by a University of Oregon landscape architecture research team, this short film captures the life and social patterns in one of Portland’s favorite urban parks over the span of a typical summer day. The project was conducted as part of Landscape Architecture Foundation’s 2013 Case Study Investigations.
From the description:
“The 2013 Case Study Investigation (CSI) research team from the University of Oregon worked to document the social benefits of Portland’s Simon and Helen Director Park. As part of the analysis, the team shot this time lapse video on Thursday, July 18, 2013, capturing three time periods: morning setup (8:30am-11:30am), lunch time (12-2pm), and evening (5-8pm). The time lapse is a compilation of over 1700 still images shot every ten seconds from a six-level parking garage adjacent to the Park. (Music: “Better to Run” by pawpaws)
