Washington University, the City of St. Louis, Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and others have organized a design competition for sustainable uses of vacant urban lots.
I am part of a team that has advanced to the 2nd round of the competition. Teams have been whittled down from 48 to 15. Here is a link to our entry.
In the next few days I'll check out the other projects and get to work on flushing out details of our plan along w/ a draft of the implementation schedule in anticipation of the next round of submissions.
