We built a way for gardeners without gardens to find neighbors with space to share. It's done well in the Boston area – BoingBoing wrote it up last year.

In the course of one day, photograph all of the examples of design that you notice, good, bad, or ugly. I'm especially interested in where you are from vs. where you are at the moment. Are you local? Is this design you grew up with or is it new to you? What does the design say to you? [more inside]
