Conceptual Design project at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. The Detroit Automotive Archive Library serves as an urban hub in the form of a Transit Station that connects the city to the surrounding areas. Using the circulation of the heart as a diagram, the Archive brings together multiple facets of its urban surroundings. It serves to relate information and to help people commute from different reaches of the urban setting. With Detroit being one of the most powerful and sprawling cities at one time in American history, the Automotive Archive and Transit Station not only focuses on the documentation of the automotive industry and it’s vast history, it also looks deep into the cities urban mesh. This project was selected for publication by the Accreditation Board.
