APT Annual Conference

November 7 November 12

Detroit, a 139 square mile city known originally for its shipping port, and later for automobiles and music, has been dramatically impacted by cultural differences, economics and general loss of population. Large swaths of formerly functioning city neighborhoods were left to slowly deteriorate. Formally revered for its culture and architecture, the city, having more abandoned buildings than occupied, became known as a national center for “ruin porn” and urban decay. Detroit is now in the midst of a building reuse, preservation and construction boom not seen in over 75 years.

APTI members worldwide can relate to Detroit’s multi-layered history; combating urban blight and economic decline; revitalizing infrastructure; and managing growth. The colonial forts and maritime structures, the birthplace of industrial manufacturing, and mid-century modern landmarks by the world’s greatest architects will be explored. Building preservation work, at an all-time high and of buildings thought to be lost to the wrecking ball, will showcase the restoration and reinvigoration of life after decades of abandonment. Come join us in Detroit in November of 2022 and see the revitalization of this great city taking shape!
