OpenCo, a mash-up of an open studio tour and a business conference, is hitting Detroit on September 12 for a full day of public access to some of Detroit's best real estate. Offices and galleries will hold sessions all day long to show off Detroit's tech sector, various start-ups, the arts, and even some production facilities (see how a cuke becomes pickle-ifed at McClure's). General admission to OpenCo is free, but registration is required. If you managed to snag a VIP ticket (not free), we'll see you on the M@dison building rooftop for a party on September 11. Or if there's just never enough Curbed in your life, come see us camped out at the offices of Patrick Thompson Design in the Auburn building.
It will be impossible to see all the cool spaces, since several of the best ones share the same time slots. But the 45-minute tours start at 9 AM and each participant can schedule 5 different stops for the day. Here are our humble suggestions for seeing 10 of the best of the 57 locations. Full schedule here.Read More
