Northern Liberties Night Market

  • Masterplan of Night Market. There is a community space on the left for community gardening, a central plaza with a sculptural fountain that educates the community about sustainability and stormwater, a larger open space for food trucks to park, and a space for parking to the far right where visitors from outside the area can come and park if they are not using the elevated rail line.
  • This is a lighting diagram to show how the space will look at night when it will get most of its visitors. There is pedestrian lighting as well as paving lighting to make the space inviting as well as safe.
  • This diagram shows where stormwater is being captured on site.
