Detroit Medical Center

April 19, 2017

In an effort to bring attention to some lesser known buildings, I thought I’d pay a visit to the Detroit Medical Center this week.  DMC is an award-wining hospital system in Midtown occupying a cluster of buildings from a plethora of eras.  I was pleasantly surprised to discover a couple Brutal-esque buildings, giving me hope that there are other hidden gems out there.
