Detroit's most famous architect, industrial and otherwise, was Albert Kahn, and this showpiece financed by the Fisher Brothers was his masterpiece. Constructed right before the 1930s, it was going to have two more towers. But what's there is great, beautiful interior, best place in Detroit...More

Our Pure Detroit guide, Jacob, made a very interesting hour. With a great knowledge of the building and Detroit, he filled us in on architecture, history and fun facts. The tours are free, but be sure to tip the guides - they're great!

The Fisher Bldg. had the nearest Fed-Ex drop off. Security polite in giving directions. I saw a lot of people walking around maybe it was a tour. But I love the architecture and all the gold and pictures.

This is one beautiful building containing offices and also the Fisher Theatre. If one is a devote of architecture, gaudiness and workmanship to the max, this is the place. Marble walls, beautiful carved sconces, light fixtures below a beautiful ceiling. In some instances breathtaking. There...More

Have a wander round the corridors of this beautiful building. Take even 15 mins to admire the huge decorated ceilings, tiled walls & floors. I think it's represents a time when the city was at its peak
