Detroit Design 139

BY JAKE CHIDESTER
@ VOL 38 ON JUL 31, 2019

Jake Chidester, Direct of Design for Bedrock Detroit, comes to PechaKucha Detroit to discuss the Detroit Design 139 month-long collaborative for September 2019. DD139 began in 2017 and started as an exhibit to create dialogue of the 10 principles of what makes good design and establish that foundation to build on.

2019 hopes to push those definitions and what it means to be a UNESCO City of Design with “Inclusive Futures” in mind, not only in the populated downtown, but in the boroughs of the neighborhoods. City Systems, Economy, Public Spaces and Neighborhood Housing will all be on the topic lists for DD139.
