Model D Speaker Series -- SIgn Up Full

The Model D Speaker Series is going green.

The next event will be at 5 p.m. on March 19 at the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle, and the topic is  "Building a Green City: Sustainable Urbanism in Detroit." An RSVP is required.

We're sorry, but this month's event is full. We'll be back next month with another great program.

The speakers will be architect Mark Nickita of the Detroit firm Archive DS  and Robin Boyle, chair of the Geography and Urban Planning Department at Wayne State University.

They will discuss the principles of sustainable urbanism, and examine how areas like Detroit's Midtown are actively utilizing the ideas.

Registration starts at 5 p.m., the lecture starts at 5:30 p.m., with networking and light refreshments to follow.

The program is sponsored by Model D, the Detroit Yacht Club and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.
