For the Architectural League of New York's Vacant Lots, a study on infill housing for what were then (1986) poor and unattended neighborhoods, Gans & Company used the vernacular technology of the metal stud in the form of urban building blocks. The work was displayed on the surface; the background information was displayed in the internal block passages lined with gypsum board. Visitors could see the magnificent space of the Mercantile Exchange Building and each other through the screens of studs as they circulated through the urban grid.
