ARCHIS announced a RSVP event in Macomb County on the topic of Suburbia After the Crash.
In the week that President-elect Barack Obama promised to create the largest public works construction program since the inception of the interstate highway system a half century ago, and President George W. Bush announced to extend up to $17.4 billion in emergency loans to prevent the collapse of General Motors and Chrysler, ARCHIS in cooperation with Abitare magazine and the Netherlands Architecture Institute propose to organize an RSVP event in Macomb County from 20 – 22 February 2009.
The ARCHIS RSVP, which is initiated by County Commissioner Toni Moceri, is focused on finding pragmatic answers on how we can move from crisis to project. More concretely, by making an inventory of the effects of the crisis we will develop a series of intervention proposals, based on the reality of Macomb County.
