On Friday 19 September 2014 Dundee joined the 162 cities around the world taking part in Global PARKing Day. The idea started in San Francisco in 2005 when Rebar Studio decided to transform car parking spaces for a day. Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD) led the way when 77 of its Interior Environmental Design students collaborated on six installations in car parking spaces around the university campus and on Perth Road in Dundee. The installations lasted for just one day. Around 920 parking space interventions were made around the world.
