A lively and endlessly browsable paperback from Wayne State University Press, 'AIA Detroit' features photos and capsule descriptions of 369 structures.--The Detroit News
Detroit possesses an architectural heritage that is under appreciated, even unknown, locally and nationally. The stock of pre-World War II high-rise buildings, for instance, is probably the fourth finest in the country, and is the downtown's greatest asset as it redevelops. This comprehensive, carefully-crafted guide will increase appreciation of Detroit's architecture from high to low, from cherished to forgotten, and from quotidian to exotic.--Douglas Kelbaugh "University of Michigan, Dean of the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan "
The authors present us with a fresh look at the architectural treasures of the greater Detroit area. From houses to factories, churches, commercial blocks and stadium, buildings are convincingly interpreted, often with a dash of humor. The book will reward anyone who is interested in the story of good design in Detroit.--Kathryn Bishop Eckert "former State Historic Preservation Office, Michigan Historical Society "
