In 2013 Bruner Loeb Forum partnered with the J. Max Bond Center on Design for the Just City, The City College of New York Spitzer School of Architecture, The American Assembly at Columbia University and the Detroit Collaborative Design Center to host a two-day workshop in Detroit, Michigan to share best practices, learn from failed implementation and brainstorm new innovations in design and development that address the common issues of chronic population loss and excessive land vacancy in the rustbelt cities of Southeast Michigan, Northeast Ohio and Upstate New York.  This was the first convening of its kind that bringing together change agents from these three regions to collaborate and network specifically around the design interventions that are regenerating their cities and communities.  The forum brought together urban designers and planners, landscape architects, architects, entrepreneurs, community leaders, tactical urbanists, public officials, nonprofits, philanthropy, policy makers and developers to share, discuss and generate progressive design ideas and strategies repurposing land into sustainable urban neighborhoods and infrastructure.
