Map: Returning to Nature with Detroit’s Streams

Archipelago Detroit 06.jpgIn 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 identification of existing and former rivers, streams and creeks with their wetland zones allows the establishment of a new structural base for the ecological urban intervention.

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