From the Youth Center Space in Corktown Detroit, Lex Zavala, Director of Programs, Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation, joins Mikyoung Kim to discuss how MYKD’s design approach at Ford Motor Company’s Michigan Central will engage the community and showcase the site’s heritage. The two discuss what’s at stake in the creation of a unified public realm – with the historic train station at its heart, an enduring symbol of home for generations of Mr. Zavela’s family.

Prioritizing a process of transparency and recognition, Mikyoung shares engagement strategies and design tools used to mitigate harmful environmental effects and support the “collective act” of creating a healthier, more sustainable space that welcomes and builds community. #MichiganCentral #ForDetroit
