About This Project

The Aadizookaan is a Detroit-based organization rooted in indigenous peoples and knowledge systems that collaborates with communities to produce multi-media storytelling installations both in Detroit and internationally.


The group won a Kresge KIP:D grant to rehabilitate a vacant building purchased through the land bank into a community center.


Unfolding Architecture in collaboration with the general contractor, AGI Construction, has worked with The Aadizookaan to gain approval from the City of Detroit for the neighborhood center in a residential zone, and provided construction drawings for the buildings’ phased rehabilitation.
