Article source: Advanced Glazings Ltd.

Detroit School of Arts is a new building housing 1200 students. The public high school is located in the heart of Detroit’s cultural centre. The building opened in February of 2005, they chose a green design as it has been shown to raise student and staff performance. The building is designed so that spaces that benefit from daylighting are on the perimeter and the spaces not requiring daylighting are in the core of the building. Mostly recycled-content materials, low emitting materials and products manufactured within the region were chosen for the building. The project team also diverted almost 60% of the construction waste by weight, from landfills.

Energizing Downtown in Detroit by Incite Design

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Article source: Incite Design

Detroit is a unique city in so many ways. It has a rich heritage but has perhaps more important in our view is its potential for embracing new ways of inhabiting spaces. Our goal was to bring the vibrancy and possibility back to the city in the form of a structure that brings together ingenuity and thoughtfulness to this site. We wanted to look forward to the promise of something re-imagined but also acknowledge what was there before and propose as part of the project a digital repository where citizens can contribute to the shared memories.
