Transformational Night of Ideas

March 5 2023 | 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Transformation and Sustainability of Architecture, Energy and Mobility

The Alliance Française de Détroit and the Detroit Historical Society are partnering to host a Night of Ideas in Detroit on Sunday, March 5. This series of events happens in 100 countries and more than 20 cities across the US around the theme of “More…?”

As we face population and environmental challenges: how do we support the growth of humanity and the search for more efficient and sustainable technologies and methods to cultivate, feed, water, house, educate, protect, and develop human beings, as well as the living species that depend on them? We will look at new capture and store clean energy technologies and review the architectural transformations going on at Michigan Central Train Station in the city of Detroit to meet the challenges for incubator workspaces that foster collaboration and creativity. A panel Q&A session will follow. 

Registration required. Refreshments provided.
