benches for municipal planning projects offer civil
engineers a wide range of choices that can be used to aesthetically compliment
an enormous range of urban environments typically found in any American
diversity of colors, design styles, mounting options, and materials, city
planners can seamlessly blend the aesthetic of outdoor furniture with that of
nearby architecture and natural forms.
The following examples represent just a few the more popular applications
in which urban planners can use specific bench design styles.
Sometimes a minimalist contemporary look is
preferred for certain municipal planning projects. This is often preferred in front of the
newest buildings in town. Also, it
is a preferred design in front of any establishment, such as a contemporary art
museum, whose focus lies more with today and tomorrow than it does with the
Park benches here should feature a conservative
look with a noticeably contemporary aesthetic. By contemporary, we mean something that
challenges our perceptions of the comforting norm. Designs are symmetrical and feature
their own unique beauty, but they do not fit into a standard view of the world
the way more traditional, iconic forms tend to do.
In other parts of the city, municipal
planning must focus on nature more than architecture. Benches here must compliment natural
forms such as trees and bodies of water.
We would immediately assume that this pertains only to city parks. In reality, there are many parts of the
city where a natural look is needed to lend a more livable sense to the
Examples of this would be university campuses, corporate office
parks, and newly remodeled historical districts. Park benches
here look much better if they are made out of wood and evoke that archetypal
image of the old wooden bench from a simpler, bygone era.
In still other parts of the city, business
is the main order of the day and demands a focused, professional mindset to be
correctly conducted. We see
this reflected in the architecture of the major buildings in the financial
districts of almost every American city.
Municipal planning here should endeavor to support that architecture with
park benches characterized by a very formal design.
popular models feature roll formed handles and very tiny perforations in the
metal seats and backs. The bench
looks almost, but not quite, solid when light hits it from the other side. Such a site is a good compliment to the
steel and glass of any major bank building towering just behind it.
Municipal planning also focuses on building
a city where creativity is encouraged.
Without creativity, education and business are going to suffer. Consequently, more cities than ever
before are looking to upgrade the neighborhoods where the majority of musicians
and artists reside. Park
benches in these areas should have a noticeable flair to their design. Anything that looks as though it were
designed by an artist is appropriate for a street corner, sidewalk, courtyard,
or even city park near one of the city’s major art galleries.
