Students in City Building Lab director Jose Gamez's architectural studio class participated in (Park)ing day - a global event where teams in cities around the world take over a parking space for a day to create a mini "parklet." As part of Charlotte's Parking Day event, the teams were each asked to build a Little Free Library - a box to be placed in a public place somewhere in the city which people can use to lend and borrow books. The students in the studio split into four groups, each group constructing their own library.
