Join the University of Washington’s Department of Landscape Architecture and Professional Advisory Committee, ARCADE, UW Department of Urban Planning and Design, and the UW Runstad Center for Real Estate at the Frye Art Museum for a panel discussion on Detroit with thought leaders who are at the heart of the city's transformation and revival.  

Detroit provides a means to study fundamental urban transformation and innovation that comes from both the top down and the grassroots level. The renewal happening in the city presents a ripe opportunity to evaluate and test civic strategies with the goal of understanding how to maximize a city’s resiliency in the service of rapid positive change in the future. Indeed, the seeds of what's happening in Detroit exist in all cities, though to lesser degrees.
