The city wants to generate economic development in the district – thousands of new jobs and residents to create much-needed tax base for the city.

Still really think #Detroit is missing out on some serious opportunities to leverage deconstruction vs. demolition. Deconstruction would be a great way to empower local people with a trade, get rid of what people like to call"blight" and save material and energy. 
The city sees the strategy as way to contain rising costs from tearing down unwanted properties.

Totally agreed. And they can start by creating an efficient mechanism (whether public or a private insurance-like system) by which the initial developer funds the inevitable cost of proper deconstruction, rather than the government having to clean up the mess. This motivates the developer to build long-lasting buildings with reusable materials to keep their projected deconstruction cost low and their payments spread out over a longer time span. Finally, when deconstruction time comes, the process and resulting trade we want is already funded by the proper source (the one who built and made money on the project in the first place)!

Latest post from +STUDI GROUP written by educator +Terrance Scott Jr.. A very opinionated and critical piece. I guess you can do that when its about the city you grew up in. Read it, Comment on it, Share it. #Detroit #KwameKilpatrick #Snyder #Michigan 
Hell, being a Black man in America is frustrating. Still, this place is nothing without intelligent Black men, especially those that are charismatic, caring leaders. I thought that’s what you were, and because I idolized you, I spent my teenage years learning to become nothing but that.

In my latest +STUDI GROUP post I'm showing off some of my sketches, drawings, and diagrams from my time spent in the People's Republic of China. Enjoy! #STUDILIFE #STUDIRIGHT #China #Beijing #Nanjing #Shanghai #Travel #Sketch
Precedent and analysis are critical components to successful urban design and architectural project. This is even more important in quickly urbanizing foreign countries, like China. This brief visual essay contains sketches of various places in of China, documenting some of the country's successes and failures in urbanism. Sketches were done by Architectural and Urban Designer, Marques King

Detroit is the New Rome #Detroit   #Rome  +STUDI GROUP 
An unlikely, dare I say, blasphemous comparison? I would argue not. The city of Detroit and the City of Rome have more things in common than in contrast. Had it not been for these two empires, the world would certainly look different. Rome, with over 2500 years in existence as a civilization, is now reaping the benefits of its history and longevity. Detroit, poised to be America’s version of the “Eternal City”, now sits at a critical po...

Here it is, this month's first bi-weekly post. Starting of with an unlikely comparison of the cities of #Rome  and #Detroit   #STUDILIFE   written by architectural/urban designer +Marques King 
Had it not been for these two empires, the world would certainly look different. Rome, over the centuries always managed to realize the value in its ancient, yet, abandoned structures. Now the city is reaping the benefits of history and longevity. Detroit, poised to be America’s version of the “Eternal City”, now sits at a critical pivot point in its history. Will it make decisions in response to economic urgency? Or will it make deci...
