// All systems have balances of success and failure, ebbs and flows, positive and negative feedback loops that create equilibrium within their respective ecologies. DETROIT represents a city in constant flux like no other on the American landscape. Assuming we are all navigating the curve of a success/fail cycle, then what might we observe to be true for Detroit? How can we represent these findings, and of what use are they to the ecology of the city itself? //
Wrapping up (beginning?) our Design Cities Detroit gathering, with several more project-based visits on the horizon. Ground truth proved surprising, and lots of creative connections were made, I am still processing what I witnessed into something real.
