RECLAIMING THE VOID
The objective of this project is to use space in a manner that positively impacts residents of the Washington Park community. This neighborhood features many vacant lots. These lots, when not claimed for the community’s greater good, become empty voids. In working to close the gaps and fill the fallow voids, this project seeks to encourage the community to reclaim and cultivate the empty lots and become better stewards of their neighborhood. The project is catalytic and the proposed interventions are planned to transform areas surrounding Washington Park over the next twenty years.
