Productive landscapes, urban ephemera, and architectural interventions

Just a short note and links to some very good posts.

The Design Observer, if you are not already regularly reading it, is a great site with a diversity of thinking about design and society. Detroit seems to have come into attention there.

First, there was a 3-part series by Jerry Herron reflecting “on the rise and fall — and persistence — of Detroit.” (links to one, two and three)

Then, with real pleasure, there was Dan Pitera’s essay, Detroit: Syncopating an Urban Landscape and slideshow of some recent interventions in the city and ideas for “productive landscapes,” “urban ephemera,” and “architectural interventions.”

While we are on Detroit, if you missed it, here’s last Sunday’s New York Times magazine on Art as a Security System.
