REVITALIZING DETROIT

URBAN PLANNING

Detroit has experience hard times over the years. Through economical and political turmoil, Detroit has been reduced to virtual ghost city. This city has abandoned lots reaching over 50% along with high levels of crime and poverty. My thesis project proposes to bring people back into Detroit through it’s main artery Woodward Avenue. within Midtown Detroit. Because the organizational system of the highways and roads became more of a barrier for growth, I propose growth through informal circulation and development. By utilizing the abandoned lots as a new form of urban void, both novel forms of circulation and activity spaces can evolve, thus sparking urban growth in the surrounding urban landscape.
