The Transforming City
June 8-11, 2016

The 24th annual Congress for the New Urbanism in Detroit will bring together over 1,500 individuals from North America and around the world for four days of education, collaboration, discussion, and debate on the policies, designs, and emerging approaches that create great places.

Detroit and its residents have endured the trauma of transformation from an industrial economy to the information age. They have confronted social, political, and economic challenges familiar to many other urban areas, only at a scale and complexity beyond what most could imagine. Now, Detroiters are emerging from that experience as pioneers of innovation at every level from neighborhood to region.

What better place for planners, designers and policymakers to gather, to learn, to share, to celebrate what this work-in-progress is producing?
