Five years after Detroit’s bankruptcy, design fuels recovery

“Five years after bankruptcy, it is an exciting time in Detroit, and there is reason to believe it will provoke a new kind of urban revitalization: one in harmony with nature and existing cultures, informed by the urban progress made over the last few decades.”

The Architect’s Newspaper on the role of design in Detroit’s recovery including the civic commons demonstration work in the Fitzgerald neighborhood that is “using design to create a place and restore beauty and community.”
