Dotting the global landscape, thousands of decommissioned military installations are leaving their mark. These abandoned structures and ghost towns disrupt neighborhoods and split entire communities.

While these sites and structures are often abandoned without plans for sustainable use, Architecture for Humanity sees them as opportunities for community investment and redevelopment. The 2011 Open Architecture Challenge, [UN]Restricted Access, asked architects and design teams to work in collaboration with community groups to develop innovative solutions to re-imagine how closed, abandoned and decommissioned military sites could be repur­posed as inspired places for public use.
