Filter Detroit: Volume 1: In collaboration with Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the College for Creative Studies is a book that was put together to showcase both PhD students and Graphic Design students on their views and thoughts of Detroit and the surrounding areas.

FILTER Detroit proudly presents the first volume of a publication about a collaborative project with the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the College for Creative Studies Detroit. An experimental transnational research project about the structural and creative developments in the Moran Street neighborhood in Detroit shaped by insider and outsider perspectives.

The book is the outcome of a series of discussions and seminars in and outside of Detroit with citizens, students, activists and researchers. In the summer of 2010 eight Urban Heritage PhD students of the Bauhaus-Universität of Weimar were invited to take a 10-day research field trip to the research residency FILTER Detroit located at Moran Street. In collaboration with the graphic design department of the College for Creative Studies, by name Susan LaPorte and her graphic design class, the PhD students took part into a series of site visits and investigations to artists, urban farmers, activists, cultural institutions and urban planners in Detroit. The result of these research travels, talks, visits and investigations have been worked into essays and visuals, written by the PhD students, Kerstin Niemann, Prof. Dr. Frank Eckardt and Susan LaPorte. In coorelation to the texts the graphic design students from CCS added their perspective and visual styles. P12645, a group of three amazing young designers, Amanda Matzenbach, Jessica Tiernan and Martin Wysor, created a design frame for the content and made this publication come to life.

The publication can be described as:

as a documentation of time and place in a particular neighborhood in Detroit
a reader
a travel diary
a theoretical starter kit
a qualitative researched data analysis of the Moran Street neighborhood in Detroit
