Activism, Buildings, Place

Owned/Abandoned: The drastic difference between an owned and a vacant property. Imagine what could be if more houses were revitalized and made into homes.

Failing House: Rowhouses are meant to support each other. When one is demolished, it threatens the structural integrity of those around it. In this case, a neighboring house was demolished, the new external wall was left unreinforced, and a homeowner was left unsupported.

Playground: Leftover concrete sewer pipes were repurposed as playground equipment during the 1960's installation of inner block parks in West Baltimore.

Rowhouses & Lots: The view from an inner block park to the adjacent street wall through vacant lots. What causes these spaces in the first place? And who participates in, and benefits from, outside intervention?
