Amazing architecture pretty much in my backyard and I often take it for granted. It's the Cranbrook Educational Community (a National Historic Landmark) in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. We used to have design studio there back in architecture school. You would just pick a spot anywhere on campus and sketch as much as you could for 4 hours. Those 4 hours never went so fast. The detail is killer.

The campus is just phenomenal. The architectural style is the Arts and Crafts Movement which originally started in Europe. The chief architects were Eliel Saarinen and Albert Kahn.
