Marshall Brown Projects: Dequindre Civic Academy

at SFMOMA (10am - 5pm)
Marshall Brown Projects: Dequindre Civic Academy reimagines the future of a Detroit city block in an installation of architectural drawings, models, and collages. Approaching urban design through a conceptual, multidisciplinary lens, Marshall Brown considers the possibilities of architecture to revitalize areas that have had historically limited access to resources, due to systemic inequality, depopulation, and infrastructural decline. Dequindre Civic Academy highlights Brown's innovative approach to solution-oriented urban design, where architecture facilitates and stimulates a progressive vision for civic life. The city-within-a-city is a proposal for a self-contained system that caters to all the needs of its multicultural, multigenerational inhabitants, spanning housing, education, commerce, and leisure.

Dequindre Civic Academy was originally commissioned for The Architectural Imagination, an exhibition of speculative architectural projects at the U.S. Pavilion in the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.
