Ghost Parking Lot – James Wines (1978)

In 1978, in an anonymous car park near the “Hamden Plaza” shopping center in Hamden (Connecticut), was created a fascinating and unique work of art: the Ghost Parking Lot, designed by SITE/James Wines.

This is an example of a “site-specific” project, which has its own particular expressive power in its placing inside a generic, trivial and anonymous urban setting: twenty cars - selected among local carbreakers between models of the ’60s and early’70s - are embedded in the asphalt surface at different depths,  from maximum exposure to the outcrop of a small part of the pavilion.

Last one,some years before demolition.
