Michigan Ave IS too damn wide!

The road is too damn wide! That's why we've formed The People First Project - our winning idea for the Knight Cities Challenge. The People First Project seeks 12 forward-thinking designers, activists, architects, urban planners, and artists to design and implement highly visible and impactful projects aimed at the transformation of Michigan Avenue from a nine-lane state highway to a complete street. Selected participants will receive $5000 to implement their idea, and will learn from some of the best minds in tactical urbanism and human-centered design. Application deadline is 11:59pm July 10.

Design is Everywhere

Take a trip around the the U.S.'s first Unesco City of Design. Stephen McGee's film speed-walks down the halls of Saint Vincent Corktown, looking in on Gunner's animation studio, and circles back later to catch Joel Grothaus starting a 5x5 oil painting of a corner building.

Detroit Design Festival 2016 // September 22-24 A short film by Stephen McGee. Narrated by Jessica Care Moore.

A good example of re-building Saint Vincent, using the building's own materials. (1) The yellowish glazed blocks are from the Mens' restroom (a bathroom wall needed to come out to accommodate folks in wheelchairs). (2) The blocks with a red line came from a different classroom (those are 50 yr old chalk lines from the carpenters who built the grid in 1965-6). (3) The rest of the repair was made with new blocks. Lots of building materials avoid the landfill when buildings are adaptively reused (compared to new construction). This will all get re-painted, and in the end, will look pretty much like new walls. Even the bullnose corner will match.

Shards of broken soapstone from the chemistry lab counters. Thinking about making some shelves out of these.
Also, apparently this stuff is great for relief carving. If you know of someone who may want a piece, let them know to come by the building Tuesday and pick up a piece.

This former Catholic school was scrapped in the late-2000s and like many abandoned buildings in Detroit, seen as an eyesore to it's neighborhood. Now it's coming back...

Fractured Water

We're working with Jeff Klein from Detroit Farm and Garden to design our future parking lot using on-site water retention and storm water runoff practices. This video is a good intro to why those issues are important, and it features one of the projects Jeff worked on, the Green Alley in Midtown.

This is "Fractured Water" by Model D TV on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Once financing is lined up to complete renovations of the second floor, the remaining offices should fill up as quickly as those on the first floor did.
