DETROIT RIVERFRONT DESIGN

 

The indigenous Native American Mound Builders of the Detroit River area framed the concept for the competition design.  The proposed design for the riverfront site introduced mound-like circular two acre programmed landscape spaces and architectural elements.  All new design elements respected the existing designs by famed sculptor Isamu Noguchi.
