Detroit design symposium to focus on green space

Culture Lab Detroit

An annual design and urbanism symposium begins tonight in Detroit. 

The focus of Culture Lab Detroit is to look at the city's 23 square miles of vacant land and figure out how to use that land in ways that enrich the lives of long-time and new residents.

Now in its third year, the program will engage internationally reputed designers, scholars, landscape architects, farmers and chefs to explore the concept of “green space.” Each dialogue is free and open to the public but tickets are required.

Founder Jane Schulak says, "they're not just coming and checking us out, but they're actually making something."

"Greening the City: The Politics and Possibilities and Green Space" will include the following guest speakers, Will Allen, Patrick Blanc, Sou Fujimoto, Stephen Henderson, Walter Hood, Reed Kroloff and Alice Waters.

You can watch a live stream of the event on their website
