Breakhouse transformed a publicly-owned parking lot into a one night installation of civic ideas. Our team constructed six foot tall dimensional letters out of transparent corrugated plastic and lit them with rotating LED lights to attract people off the main street.

People entering the space were given the opportunity to have their say about the city by writing down their opinion and having their picture taken. These photos were projected onto an adjacent wall, showing everyone that walked by how much the citizens of Halifax care about their home. Over 500 ideas were collected and displayed throughout the night.
