Projects for Detroit

Friday, September 27, 2013

Presentation by McLain Clutter, Assistant Professor, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Lecture Summary: Detroit is now synonymous with urban blight, fiscal insolvency and post-industrial decay. In his lecture, Projects for Detroit, Clutter will present work that illuminates one of Detroit's lesser-known qualities -- its ability to spark architectural and urban experimentation. Presenting projects that span in scale and technique from digital cartography to physical installation, Clutter will argue for architecture's agency in projecting provocative counter-narratives for Detroit's future.
