Dreamtroit Future Envisioning

1+1+ was awarded the RFP for the masterplan of a three-acre site in Detroit that comprises housing as well as public services and programming. These include a public art park, a neighborhood recycling center, and Green Living Science, which provides environmental education for Detroit-area schoolchildren. Because of its many audiences, Dreamtroit prioritizes a porous site that welcomes the public from all sides. Our proposal responds to existing site conditions as design opportunities: the historic Lincoln Motor Building is transformed into an outdoor theater, and an art wall and sculpture park are expanded along the railroad tracks. A phased approach allows the owners to raise funding and make changes as their needs evolve.
