006: CASE: Hilberseimer/Mies van der Rohe Lafayette Park Detroit

If you found the last post interesting, I would highly recommend reading CASE: Hilberseimer/Mies van der Rohe Lafayette Park Detroit a collection of essays edited by Charles Waldheim, whom I had the pleasure to hear speak at Syracuse University's symposium Formerly Urban,  a two day conference on Rust Belt cities and their futures. I am hoping to find transcripts or videos of the conference to post, but as of yet have come up short. There were many discussions about the city of Detroit as well as a few success stories from other shrinking cities. A copy of the symposium pamphlet can be found below.

Formerly Urban

John Hill chose the book as a "Book of the Moment" and there are some words from the publisher posted on his blog below. His blog A Daily Does of Architecture has been added to the blog list.
