makeArchitecture is presenting at the 105th ACSA Convention in Detroit. Our project "A Third Logistical Regime: The Ecological Succession of Industrial Ruins" was selected by Luis Francisco Rico-Gutierrez & Martha Thorne for inclusion in the "Brooklyn: Move to Detroit."
Many industrial cities grew up around transportation nodes. These nodes were originally water routes and evolved in the 19th century to railroad yards. Factories and and warehouses sprouted. Today these urban nodes are being supplanted by mush larger ones in the ex-urban areas and the question is how to cultivate them for the 21st century rather than redeveloped them in terms of urban or other 20th century strategies.
In our our scheme we explore what can be done with the typical inner-city railroad yard and its environs. We will report more in the coming weeks.
