University of Detroit Mercy

Detroit, Michigan



The university delivers student-centered undergraduate and graduate education in an urban context, and is home to the Detroit Collaborative Design Center, a community outreach program of the School of Architecture. Through this grant, the design center is coordinating a neighborhood-transformation project, developed by Denby High School students in partnership with Detroit Future City and the Michigan Environmental Council, to turn Skinner Playfield into a neighborhood park that supports community well-being.
