Photographer's Note

Since it was a nice day today I decided to go downtown to play with the digital camera. I decided to photograph some of the buildings of the architect Minoru Yamasaki.

This is the main lounge of the McGregor Memorial Conference Center on the campus of Wayne State University. Built in 1958, the conference center is a 2 story building with conference rooms around a glass covered reception area. The building is clad in marble, glass and with teak doors Its inspiration draws from wide sources ranging from gothic cathedrals to Japanese sand gardens.

Minoru Yamasaki was based in Detroit and is best known for the World Trade Center and his delicate, gothic-inspired, international style buildings.
