Maurice Cox is the Director of Planning and Development for the City of Detroit, as well as a nationally acclaimed leader of the public interest design movement. In his current role, Cox is positioning design as a tool to re-imagine post-bankruptcy Detroit as a laboratory for urban regeneration. His commitment to integrating citizen participation into the visioning and design process has led to vibrant plans that become tools for civic discourse and empowerment. 

Cox will present a portfolio of City-commissioned work in landscape architecture, housing, and public space that is shaping Detroit's image as the ultimate comeback city.
