“… vacant lots and underutilized urban space associated with housing loss and disinvestment directly affects the sense of community and cohesion in many Chicago neighborhoods. The lack of design and lack of care create “holes” in the urban fabric. We believe that a collaborative design process can be used to mend these ‘holes’.”
