City of Detroit Planning Director Maurice Cox is an urban designer, architectural educator and former mayor of the City of Charlottesville, VA. He most recently served as Associate Dean for Community Engagement at Tulane University, School of Architecture, and Director of the Tulane City Center, a university-affiliated practice operating at the intersection of design, urban research and civic engagement throughout the New Orleans community. His experience merging architecture, politics and design education led to his being named one of “20 Masters of Design” in 2004 by Fast Company Magazine. In 2013, Cox was named one of the “Most Admired Design Educators” in America in the annual ranking of Design Intelligence.
Cox will discuss his role in city government, MOCAD’s current exhibit, The Architectural Imagination, and his vision for the reinvention of Detroit.
