The Model D Speaker Series revisited the topic of sustainable urbanism, at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 22, 2008, at the Detroit Yacht Club
on Belle Isle.
Detroit architect Mark Nickita of Archive DS
will return with real Detroit examples of sustainability. Part one of
this topic, explored in March, proved extremely popular, so we're
bringing it back.
Other speakers will be:
• Chris Bray of the Detroit Catholic Pastoral Alliance, whose Gratiot Woods
developments offer examples of the principles of sustainable urbanism in action.
• And Diane VanBuren Jones of WARM Training,
getting the American Institute of Architects' sustainability audit
The series is sponsored by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority
and the Detroit Yacht Club.

in Midtown, as part of the DSO's 8 Days in June festival and Model D's 3-year Birthday.
