Lecture: “Detroit Revitalization – The role of arts, architecture and design in the economic recovery of Detroit”

October 24th we attended a meeting organized by the PhD School of Architecture of IUAV (Venice). We met Maurice Cox (Director of Planning Department, City of Detroit), Raquel Castaneda-Lopez (a member of City Council, City of Detroit) and Julie Egan (deputy Director, Detroit Federal Working Group, The White House). We exchanged our contacts and we agreed to meet eachother in Detroit in during our stay. The day after we visited “La Biennale” in Venice and saw the USA Pavillion, which focused on the city of Detroit. Some Photos are in the section “PHOTOS” in our blog.
