Urban Hotdog Stands

Minjae Kim

This project looks at the hotdog stands that appears at 10th and Pike everynight by bars and music venues such ans Neumos, Comet Tavern, and Bimbos. Everynight during and after bar hours these hotdog stands are crowded with people then next morning they are nowhere to be found.

This interesting phenomenon is a good example of ad-hoc urbanism which takes place in unproper sites, mainly focused to take the most advantage out of the right moment.

In weekends they sell hundreds of hotdogs. The lines are so long, the cart will be blocked from view by the crowd. Then again, next morning, the cart is nowhere to be found. If you want to get a hotdog from here, you will have to wait for the right moment.
