There's definitely some common themes running through all of those sunken water feature plazas. There is something very welcoming about the way they sink gradually into the ground.

Some Michigan examples:

Project: Riverbank Park
Location: Flint, Michigan

Project: Fish Ladder Park
Location: Grand Rapids, Michigan


Fish Ladder by Phil Squattrito, on Flickr

It gets fish over the 6th Street Dam:

I believe the tallest building in the state to use concrete as it's facade treatment is the McNamara Federal Building in Detroit:

It's a real monster, which I think was the point. I still have very mixed feelings about concrete as a defining architectural characteristic of a structure. I guess it can be really impressive, but when it misses, it misses bigly.

Concrete is durable material in construction, the buildings built of concrete will certainly have a longevity
