In this context, I mean any building that isn't the typical blue/concrete you find in most cities. Maybe I should have titled it 'Coloured Skyscrapers'

Could not find a photo of the Red Apple in the Flickr Acount of Topaas. So I posted my own Photo of this Building.

As colorful as Detroit's 40 story (1929 Art Deco) Guardian Building is from the
outside... with "Guardian Orange" bricks...

image hosted on flickr


... it was no match for the colorful Art Deco exuberance of the inside... America's greatest Art Deco Bank Building...

The epitome of "Gotham City"....

The exuberant color and detail to even the smallest designs is inescapable in the Guardian Building... even at the crown 40 stories up! It's no wonder it is called the "Cathedral of Finance"....

image hosted on flickr


And the entranceway of the Guardian Building with its' two sculptured sentinels guarding the main entrance, only hints at the 22 types of marble, the colorful tiles and over the top opulence found inside...
