Vacant lots are gaps in the street wall, they can be scary night and day and they symbolize a lack of care. (Vacant) Lots of Love is a program designed to empower local communities to improve their urban night time environment through a simple kit of parts — tarpaulin, gravel, power and lighting — turning neglected open-spaces into volumes of light. The program encourages local volunteers and landowners to collaborate in reclaiming neglected urban space, simultaneously beautifying the night, fostering community activity and neighborhood pride. A signage system, recalling age rings in trees, shows the length of time that the lot has been empty. Carefully selected to create a string of glowing landmarks, idle open spaces gives back to the streetscape — by day a “borrowed landscape” and by night glowing carpets of light, filling empty space with love.
