The finalists will compete for 3 awards to be announced at the awards ceremony on Tuesday, October 8th. The Place by Design award categories are: Transformative Design, Community Impact, and Global Potential.


About Our Submission

The Detroit-Superior Bridge Project invited a broad spectrum of the public to engage in a fun and productive planning process to transform the bridge’s abandoned lower level into an active public space. Employing temporary, yet realistic, mock-ups of alternative proposals for bicycle amenities, directional signage, and performance spaces, this project enabled attendees to make informed decisions and provides needed inspiration to other initiatives aimed at rewriting the stories of forgotten, yet extraordinary, places.
