Urban Voids
Szu-Han Ho and Jesse Vogler
a proposal for vacant lots
Philadelphia, Pa

The massive scope of the vacant area in the city of Philadelphia demands an alternative to infill, the normative mode of ‘patching up’ urban voids. A method of infiltration which will re-instate urban vitality on a wholesale scale is to be addressed through means of formal, logistical, and operational strategies. This proposal highlights five layers of approach ::

(1) Erasure (2) Network of Stoppages (3) Allotment (4) Sound-scape (5) Light-scape.
