According to Arch Daily, Detroit was recently recognized as the country’s first official “City of Design,” thanks to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or UNESCO, and its Creative Cities Network.

A total of 116 cities from 54 countries make up the network, and are recognized for their contributions across seven creative fields, including crafts & folk art, design, film, gastronomy, literature, music and media arts.

Detroit was able to secure its place as a City of Design thanks in part to the application submitted by the Detroit Creative Corridor Center, or DC3, an organization committed to fostering creative fields in the state.

According to Crain’s, DC3 highlighted the city’s design-based events, such as the Detroit Design Festival, and its ongoing industrial revival.
