Property Praxis

Property Praxis is a collective exercise illustrating the impact of speculation on cities. Speculators control nearly 20 percent of all land parcels in Detroit.

It is often a practice with minimal investment that hastening the deterioration of houses, commercial, and industrial buildings.
