The Detroit News

Today is Thursday, May 26, 2016, and reporter Louis Aguilar is in Venice for the 2016 Architecture Biennale, where Detroit is going to play a big role.

The Motor City is the sole focus of the U.S. entry. It’s based on four Detroit sites and these sites look like nothing that exists in the city now.
