Vacant Urban Spaces in Buenos Aires

Vacant Lot in the city center of Buenos Aires used as Estacionamiento (parking lot)
There are many vacant lots in Buenos Aires that are abandoned or boarded, primarily the result of teardowns. Some of them are in the center city areas making it prime for urban infill development. Very often they are used as parking lots like this one in the picture which is recognizable by the E in a rounded sign. The E stands for playa de estacionamiento. Happy parking everyone!

I just had the pleasure of touring Buenos Aires through your blog. I really like your rain shot a few pages down.

It's interesting that that so many cities have the same problems. I don't think we've planned our spaces very well.
