Detroit City Study is an academic co-working space in Detroit, renovating the social and spatial relations of urban research.  Motivated by a breakdown in the value and infrastructure of education across universities and cities, Detroit City Study argues that in order to rethink education we must re-place it.  Borrowing from the model of co-working, Detroit City Study opens up the practices of academic research through shared and open workspace, built around the needs of academic work and urban education. The space will operate as a collaborative workplace for place-based research with a direct pipeline toward public pedagogy, engaging urban researchers, students and community members in the first city-wide co-learning space.
