Detroit Public Schools built this six-story public high school with communications and media arts curricula. Brick, glass, and metal cover the exterior. An eight-hundred-seat auditorium and two television studios anchor either end of the school with performance, rehearsal, and exhibition rooms in the center wrapped with sunny circulation and gallery space on the perimeter. The building was LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.
