On Sept. 7, from 1:30-6 pm, join Bedrock and the architects behind the restoration of Book Tower for a celebration of one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in Detroit’s skyline. After removing decades of grime, painstakingly restoring the façade’s remarkable architectural details, and installing nearly 2,500 windows, Bedrock invites you inside Book Tower for a tour of its storied spaces, led by those working on its transformation.
The event will begin in Detroit Design 139’s 1001 Woodward location with a presentation about the building’s history and future, followed by guided group tours of Book Tower at 1265 Washington Blvd. Please note that Book Tower is an active construction site, so attendees must wear long pants and close-toed shoes. On the day of the event, all attendees must also sign a waiver in order to participate in a building tour. Hardhats and vests will be provided to all ticketed attendees and the tour will involve a lot of walking, including up and down stairs. A happy hour reception will conclude the festivities at 1001 Woodward.
*Eventbrite ticket required at entry.
