My opinion of Detroit changed a bit for the better when I saw photos of architectural master Mies van der Rohe's homes in Lafayette Park while perusing Dwell. They remind me a lot of the homes showcased in a sequence of this movie.
beeeeeauuutiful. (and i wish it was green and springy here now.)
Yesss! That building is very very cool, I live close to Detroit and go there often, in the spring there are the most beautiful flowering trees on the grounds as well!

I do love me some Mies. How can you not love designs by the Barcelona Chair designer himself?!?!
I really appreciate your thoughts and ideas, thanks for reading!
