“The Unreal Estate Guide to Detroit” is a guidebook to the provisional, improvised and furtive urbanism of creative survival in Detroit. The book documents urban forms, projects and practices that have emerged in response to Detroit’s “collapse”; in so doing, it attempts to represent a precarious urban condition on the margins of public visibility and governmental administration without compromising that condition’s productive illegitimacy, fragility and secrecy.
