Must See Buildings
of Michigan

If you seek great architecture, look about you!

From its earliest days as a New France colony, to its grand capitol, to the factory and assembly buildings of the industrial age, to the sleek and contemporary architecture of the mid-century to the continued progress seen today, architecture in Michigan offers something for everyone.

Historic and contemporary architecture can be found that tells the historic, cultural, recreational and residential story of Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. In addition to the projects featured below, we are fortunate to have the permission of two world-class photographers for use of their collections of amazing architecture and architects in Michigan and beyond.

Come back often to see what’s new in this collection!
