Like every community in our state, Grand Rapids has some older

buildings that may be due for a fresh, new use. On this tour of

downtown Grand Rapids, participants will get oriented to the

geographic and historic context of the area, particularly the

20th century buildings and their ongoing reuse. We’ll discuss

the value of mid-20th-century resources, the significance of

modernism in Michigan communities, and the use or reuse of

these resources. This tour should spark some ideas of how to

rejuvenate aging or underutilized buildings in your area.
