Lean Detroit, Lean Urbanism
Lean Detroit, Lean Urbanism will scan Detroit's urban history and past attempts to revitalize the city. Professor Kelbaugh will discuss challenges, assets and recent successes, and introduce the newly emerging concept of Lean Urbanism and how it might apply to making the small possible in the city. Two Knight Foundation proposals for LU in Detroit - one for a "Pink Zone" and another for "Tree Zippers" --will be briefly presented.
Lunch is included but please bring a drink.
These sessions are a response to requests from faculty and students to learn more about what’s going on in the field in an informal environment. We hope this can inspire emergent thoughts and connections that will inform our scholarship. If you have research you would like to present, or a provocative article you would like to discuss, please speak with Larissa Larsen, David Weinreich, or Carla Kayanan.
