Lace up your walking shoes or hop aboard the People Mover: it’s time to take a tour of the best architecture in downtown Detroit.
Downtown you’ll find a variety of building styles—Beaux Arts, Art Deco, midcentury modern, postmodern—designed by a number of seminal architects like Albert Kahn, Minoru Yamasaki, C. Howard Crane, and more.
We didn't include all of our favorites, just the most recognizable. The Penobscot stands tall in the skyline, as does the Ren Cen and One Detroit (or Ally Detroit). While others, like the Guardian Building and the David Whitney, have some of the most beautiful lobbies in the city.
If you find yourself in Capitol Park or Harmonie Park, we have separate maps for those areas, which are both seeing a surge in renovations.
Time to head out and explore the city!Read More
