The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit by Andrew Herscher

What if Detroit has not only fallen apart, emptied out, disappeared and/or shrunk, but has also transformed, becoming a novel urban formation that offers potentials as well as challenges? In recent years, this proposition has sponsored a growing number of responses, from small-scale ephemeral interventions to longer-term place-based activism, all availing themselves of Detroit's vast repository of devalued, abandoned or vacant urban property. Posing these diverse responses as aspects of a condition rather than solutions to a problem, The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit tells a new story of the city in a time of conjoined precarity and possibility-a story of urban decline yielding conditions favorable for urban experimentation, invention and, perhaps, change.
