About THE COMPETITION
Imagine if these spaces could be activated first as community storefronts where residents could exchange ideas and be informed about the design and planning happening in their neighborhood? What if these community storefronts could provide space for neighborhood organizations, small businesses and local entrepreneurs to temporarily attract residents in Detroit’s neighborhood commercial corridors? How might this look?
Design Center in a Box is a collaboration between the City of Detroit Planning & Development Department and the Detroit Collaborative Design Center at UD Mercy. It is funded by the Knight Foundation’s Cities Challenge.
