Street Furniture Australia launched the pop-up park and social study in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, the ACT Government and In the City Canberra to coincide with the 2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture: Not In My Backyard.
The park, designed by landscape architecture firm Context, featured movable furniture, knitted trees, lighting, living lawn, free Wi-Fi and book shelves, making the space more colourful, green and inviting.
Before #BackyardExperiment, 97% of visitors passed through Garema Place without stopping. During the experiment visitor numbers to Garema Place almost doubled, increasing by 190% in just 8 days. The number of people who stayed increased by 247%.
