RUMORS: Detroit structures you aren't hearing about / by chris miele

We've all heard about the many buildings of Detroit that are abandoned, decayed, burned, and left to crumble.  What about the buildings that haven't been maligned and left to die?  For the first complete series of RUMORS I wanted to highlight structures that not only haven't fallen into disrepair, but instead could pass for structures of the future.  Within this series are architectural milestones, charter schools that replaced their rotting counterparts, and glass so gleaming the only reflections are that of hope and growth.  Perception is a powerful tool, I hope this series gives a glimpse of a more promising Detroit.
