Map: Detroit’s Vacant and Residential Archipelago 2010

Archipelago Detroit 05

In 2010, Lars Gräbner of Volume One Studio and the University of Michigan Taubman College, began conducting a mapping study of Detroit in order to conceptualize a future for the city.

More from Lars Gräbner:

The superimposition of data of actual vacant parcels and residential buildings onto the analytical map of levels of structural loss by census block groups allows the evaluation of intervening actions with higher precision and intention.

These maps were featured in Mapping Detroit (Chapter 8: Mapping the Urban Landscape: Revealing the Archipelago) available from the WSU Press.
