How do we increase the number of people walking in any given city? Easy, just add more designated parking spaces for them. The group Springtime created these “Person Parking” spaces as a part of a design competition held in Milan.

From Springtime:

“Duepercinque is a design competition part of the Public Design Festival in Milan. The mission: develop a creative solution for a parking spot of 2×5 meter (due per cinque), returning it to the public domain in a positive way.”

Great idea for those long walks around the block, but can we add some cushions in version 2.0?
