Detroit by Design

Jeff Jordan Architects in collaboration with Dan Kopec RA, Alex Cutrona and Gabe Canizo, submitted an entry in the "Detroit by Design 2012: International Riverfront Design Competition".  Our scheme proposes a series of choreographed park and city ribbons that link the city to the Detroit River.  The ribbons are reminiscent of the early French farming settlement along the waterfront and offer a more robust connection to the river for today's city dwellers and visitors.
