UK Architecture Critic Quite Likes Detroit, Seems Smitten

On the lookout for "key urban issues" in America, Brit Architecture Critic Tom Keeley paused his jaunt across the country for a two-week stay in Detroit. And he rather liked it.

But let me start by saying that Detroit is a beautiful city. It's a city with heart and soul. It's one of the most incredible, confusing, contradictory and overwhelming places I've ever been. Keeley goes on to pan the Heidelberg Project and the Renaissance Center (abhorrent!) praise up-and-coming Corktown, and shelter himself from a downpour at Nancy Whiskey's.
