Public Radio International features Assistant Professor Roddier in “Foreigners drawn to Detroit”

Architecture Assistant Professor Mireille Roddier was featured in Public Radio International's story "Foreigners drawn to Detroit, witness to a city's fall and attempt to rise again," published June 11, 2012. The story focuses on the experiences of four Europeans, three from France and another from Norway, now living in or visiting Detroit. In the article, Roddier says Detroit is as American as it gets: "To me, Detroit is so completely embedded in the history of modernity and of 'Fordism;' it is amazing to be here, to see it up close" said Roddier. Other Europeans interviewed include Detroit Free Press photographer Romain Blanquart and French documentary maker Nora Mandray.
