Abstract content

  • Removal of the obvious view of "site", where the removal of Detroit from preconcluded context of what Detroit is as a "site" will reveal the true language of "pattern" or "current".
  • Engaging graphic studies of "currents" and "patterns", be them plan or section or dimensional, as found in the research. Here, a redefined point of view can establish the "site", or rather ground plane, that instills the development of the research into a "space" for an external view that re-educates us on the developments and possibilities of urban context.
  • The idea of a "graph" that outlines the development of preconcluded interpretations of the underlying layers of the urban context.
  • Not so much to redefine Detroit as a whole, but provide a base in which to perform a study of particular component of the "currents" that comprise a space, the space being metropolis.
  • Basically, we're going to do some research that finds a graphic representation of the existing, base components of the "site" we want to use. Then, we're going to apply the research and project intentions to develop a "space" that removes itself from what people think of Detroit, and provide them with a different view. This will be accomplished through the graphics, the physical "space", and hopefully visual graphics such as video.
  • The use of "" around words means we are going to redefine these terms to remove any preconcieved ideas. We are going to change stuff.
