Map: The Rise and Fall of Downtown Detroit

This is a sequence of maps depicting the transformation of downtown Detroit over the past 150 years, redrawn from various archival sources. The maps depict the rapid growth and subsequent decline of the urban core’s built form. All maps have been drawn by myself or my graduate assistants at the University of Michigan and the University of Cincinnati and are copyrighted. – Conrad Kickert
