City-Saving Eco Structures

Riparian Urbanism is a conceptual urban farm designed by Sprout Design & Media to breathe life back into the dying city of Detroit. The Motor City has seen a decline in recent years, thanks to the struggles of the American auto industry, but now things are starting to turn around and Sprout Design & Media aims to keep things going in a positive direction with Riparian Urbanism.

Riparian Urbanism will sit on the border of Lake Eerie and act as a natural riparian zone. Like the natural riparian zones of the world, this concept would feature varying kinds of vegetation and crops, with other space being set aside for offices and research centers. The space would be used for eco-friendly initiatives such as the cultivation of algae for use as a bio-fuel. The designers hope that this project will help shine the spotlight back on Detroit without highlighting its recent struggles.
