The curators of the 2016 US Pavilion at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale have announced an open call for proposals for the exhibition The Architectural Imagination. They are looking for speculative projects that use Detroit as a testing ground for new modes of urbanism that could have application around the world.

They are looking for “design excellence, innovative speculative thinking, and architectural expertise in built and/or unbuilt work.”
