But what to do until owners and bankers are ready to act? James and Molly Enos offer one solution [in San Diego] near the corner of 15th and K streets.

From The Periscope Project’s Web site:
Operating as studio workspace occupied by a rotating core cooperative, and re-programmable exhibition and event space in a unique urban context, the project works to provide amenities for students, artists, designers, scholars and activists working with and in response to their urban environment.
The project opened in October 2010.
