Video: Overview of Shrinking Cities

From the Shrinking Cities project, there’s a great video (without audio) on change in shrinking cities from Detroit to Manchester/Liverpool, UK to Leipzig and the Essen area in Germany. The simulation shows that these regions are spreading out almost as much as they are shrinking. This seems particularly the case with Detroit and Manchester/Liverpool. In the case of the latter, it appears that after years of attempting to restructure, there has been some infilling of abandoned areas. Might be some good ideas there for shrinking U.S. cities, and we’ll try to follow up on that in another post.
