After 30 years, architect Michael Poris is still fighting to save old buildings
Throughout its nearly 30 years in business, McIntosh Poris Architects has had a hand in some of the most recognized projects in Detroit.
That includes the planned renovation of the Fisher Body No. 21 plant on Detroit’s east side to the Motown Museum to scores of housing developments around the city. But beyond just singular projects, it’s some of the advocacy work and push toward historic preservation that stands out to Michael Poris, founding partner of the architecture firm with offices in Detroit and Birmingham.
