This past fall, the CUDC hosted an Exhibition in its gallery space on Lafayette Park, a thriving development in Detroit designed by the famous modern architect, Mies Van Der Rohe. Our professor, Steve Rugare, lectured several times on the subject matter and composed several tours of the space. What I admired the most was detail of the physical models. His attention to detail, which can seem obsessive, is probably crucial both to Lafayette Park's beauty and to its survival. It is regarded as a work of art to be treasured and tended by its residents.
