About The Sit Project

The SIT Project is an endeavor in neighborhood solidarity based on the premise that if you see something that is broken, go fix it. I find chairs that have been tossed to the curb and are destined for the landfill, then take them home and re-FAB-ilitate them;  whether that means lassoing a broken arm rest together with colorful duct tape, painting a laughing face on the seat, or simply adding a frilly parasol.  Then I take the newly restored chair and plant it at a bus stop with no seating. It’s that easy.

    Cairo – Tactical becomes Revolutionary Urbanism

    Just got finished reading this fantastic NY Times piece about how people are exercising their power to make Cairo what they want it to be, post-revolution. In the absence of a governing body, the citizens of Cairo built their own on-ramp to get on their freeway and cut down wait times – out of trash and dirt.

    As Omar Nagati, a young Egyptian architect and planner says “This was always a revolution about unjust urban conditions and about public space. The ramp is just one example. People now realize they have the right to determine what happens on their own streets, to their own neighborhoods…”

    For urban planning/public space geeks like me this is SO interesting
