It is perhaps the clearest and earliest example of the effects of a globalized economy and labor market. Urban Ecology contains projects generated by the International Center for Urban Ecology (iCUE), a nomadic laboratory for future cities. The laboratory investigation promotes discourse on the decomposition and possible reconstitution of a moving city. iCUE takes anti-architectural and non-urban perspectives, using multi-disciplinary processes and integrated collaboration with local communities and activists. Urban Ecology brings together essays on Detroit and many other cities in crisis around the world.
