LafargeHolcim Foundation International Symposiums on Sustainable Construction
5th International Forum 2016 – “Infrastructure Space”

Each of the four concurrent workshops at the 5th International Forum were organized as two half-day sessions and a full-day guided “mobile workshop” (excursion), travelling to different sites throughout the city of Detroit. The workshops examined reorienting human habitation of the planet through infrastructure at four different scales: architectural, metropolitan, territorial, and planetary.
