“Local nonprofit Building Matters Ann Arbor to launch downtown architecture tours this fall” – All About Ann Arbor / Click on Detroit

We love this initiative to invite both Ann Arbor townies and Washtenaw County visitors out to enjoy the beautiful architecture and history of our town!
Check out the Ann Arbor architecture tour opportunities starting this fall!

“We are interested in cultivating a community, a city, that is literate about buildings and the built environment. Development too often feels like something that happens to us instead of with us. We’d like to be the organization that helps mediate between the things that happen to us and the things that happen with us by giving people the vocabulary through the tours, to be able to understand history and context and how values play out in the things that we do and don’t build.” – Jessica A.S. Letaw on Building Matters Ann Arbor‘s mission
