Acclaimed French photographer Michel Arnaud’s new book Detroit: The Dream is Now: The Design, Art, and Resurgence of an American City highlights some of the creative talent changing the landscape in Detroit. With over 300 photos covering art, design, food, and classic Detroit architecture, plus interviews and essays with residents, the book offers a detailed look at design, creativity, and the built environment in Detroit.
Arnaud’s photos span the range of classic architecture like the Fisher Building, the General Motors Technical Center, Lafayette Park, and the Guardian Building, to newer adaptive reuse projects like Mike and Lynne Savino’s bank building-turned home, Christopher Burcham’s former hardware store-turned multi-unit home (currently on the market), and the dPOP! offices.
Arnaud and the Platform, who is hosting the Beacon Project’s exhibit of his work, provided Curbed with some photos from the series. The photos are currently on display at the Fisher Building lobby and open to the public.
