what to do with that space

Baltimore is full of unused, abandoned urban space. But Baltimore's Office of Promotion & the Arts has recently put up a Flickr site called the Baltimore Infill Survey in hopes of sparking conversations about how these spots can be used.

On the Flickr site, there's a template image of an empty lot (above). The idea is to pull the photo down and fill it with something useful. Here are a few of my picks. There are many more on Flickr and, of course, you can make your own and send it in!

I'm loving the idea of an urban beach.

Or how about a giant fish tank!

A big bean...Chicago?

A waterfall could be refreshing.
