I’ve always wanted to see the Miami RiverWalk improved and see its full potential, I guess since the Miami River Day festival earlier this month I’ve been even more focused on the river. And seeing two new big developments about to happen, now is the time to push for those improvements. I made an observation last week about the benches, so here are some ideas.
Seating should be single seat type with no back or armrest, allowing user to sit, lean or take a short rest, but not allow for lying down or provide long-term comfort. Top can be flat or curved, although if flat a slight slant is preferred. Placed only in open, well-lit areas, in groups of two or three and spaced far enough apart that one can’t stretch across to lay down or sleep. Design and color should reflect a distinct Miami style attractive to residents and tourists.
