Design Challenge:

Architects will deal with the area where once stood the Joe Louis Arena, beside the place where—according to tradition—Detroit’s founding fathers landed. Participants will have the opportunity to design a building complex to redefine the city skyline. They will generate superb architecture masterpieces to become the symbol of the revival of one of the most iconic and controversial cities of the history of the United States of America.
