RenCen 4×10

Lemme tell y’all: when I was a kid, coming to visit my relatives in Detroit was bigger than Disney World to me! The Motor City! The tunnel to Canada! Riding the steamboat to Boblo Island amusement park! But the Renaissance Center was the futuristic masterpiece that signaled late 70s urban sophistication. Drawing the Ren Cen (based on a postcard) made me want to be an architect when I grew up (ah, childhood dreams). So I’m THRILLED to be staying here for the first time! Really, I was almost giddy with delight when I got here, 40 years (I think) after I originally visited! Yayyy!
