Welcome to the Detroit Center for Design and Technology

The Detroit Center for Design + Technology is the home of Lawrence Technological University College of Architecture and Design’s Detroit programs. With a strong track record of student and faculty projects situated in the City of Detroit, Lawrence Tech’s solidified presence on Woodward Avenue brings more opportunities to position existing programs to have a greater social and community impact, along with more opportunities to engage organizations and groups that are working to rebuild and rejuvenate the city.

DCDT Design Incubator

Located within the LTU’s Detroit Center for Design + Technology (DCDT) between the College of Architecture and Design academic studios and theoffices of onsite partners, the DCDT Design Incubator will provide a dynamic coworking and collaboration space for students, faculty, designers and professionals – as well as community innovators and entrepreneurs. Funded by the Hundson Webber Foundation, this will be a place in which to work and engage in order to create new ideas and form business and service opportunities. The Incubator will educate young, creative talent and foster innovation, design thinking and the commercialization of art and design ideas through active coaching and collaboration with industry professionals, in addition to providing access to state-of-the-art technology. Once launched, the Design Incubator will house four programs – DCDT Accelerator, DCDT Fellowship Program, DCDT Cowork Space and DCDT Design Studio.
