Fish mall.

An abandoned shopping mall full of fish

The onetime Thai shopping emporium was shut down in 1997 due to building code violations and a massive fire that destroyed its roof. Apparently rainwater slowly filled the abandoned building and caused a major mosquito outbreak in the area. It was a bad enough problem that in an effort to stop the mosquitos, locals introduced freshwater fish to the abandoned mall to eat the insects.

    Coincidentally, I'm reading The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, which describes a Bangkok made of such things except they're populated by genetically modified recreations of extinct species along with some that have never existed.

    You need a book of the month, this can be it.

  2. And then to eat the fish, sharks.

  3. This is a dystopian future I can get behind. Also, I bet they could have secured a grant to fund this if they called it art.
