Ann Arbor - You gotta puff a j to this one

STATE----->UNIV OF MICH------> SOUTH U DISTRICTS
Houses aren't the only thing that burn in this thread. AA HASH BASH 2009

I took work off cause I've been working extra overtime, plus I'm about to finish grad school in two weeks. I'm napping and dreaming about my apartment burning down when suddenly the smoke detector goes off....I wake up but it isn't my building burning. I walk out the front door and the front of the house across the street is in flames. My camera battery was dead, but here's what I got after I recharged. Well, I was up now and decided to get some photos. So sit back and enjoy.










































The New University of Michigan Business School, a $100 million gift to the University. Most of the U's new construction comes from a slice of the $3.4 Billion fund from generous donations and gifts. It can confidently be said that despite being a public university, all new buildings are privately financed from donations. Hardly any public money is used.


Stadium renovation. Michigan stadium is the fourth largest in the world, but was recently dethroned as largest in the US because of the renovations, requiring seats to be removed for an unrealistic number of handicapped spots. I like the way the stadium looks in this shot. They shouldn't finish it.






Now I'm hungry

Well, there wasn't much to do at Great Lakes Crossings in Auburn Hills.

God I feel old. The place hasn't changed much, which is a good thing. Sure there's new construction but so much is still there.

Thanks for the shots.
