While cruising Inhabitat we stumbled over a link to a design competition to develop strategies for Philadelphia's forty thousand empty lots, the thousand acres of prime urban land that has "become one of the nation's foremost examples of urban abandonment and extensive sprawl." The missing teeth in so many urban centres seriously need fixing, and as the 'burbs become unsustainable such land will be an important resource. This is a very interesting competition- winners in phase 1 go on to receive $ 5,000 for Phase 2, Reconnecting the Lots Treehugger was late from the gates on this one- Registration closes at 5:00 EST on Monday November 14 so architects and urban designers, move quickly. ::Urban Voids
