Compuware Building

A game changer for Detroit that transformed a desolate downtown into a welcoming destination.

One Campus Martius is located in the heart of the City’s Central Business District. ROSSETTI designed the building from the ground up (then called, the Compuware Building. Its presence catalyzed growth and jump-started economic reinvestment in the downtown core.

Its soaring entrance creates a synergy with the bustling Campus Martius Park, guiding visitors and employees from the plaza into the lobby. Once inside, visitors stand in awe of the monumental waterfall and art sculpture, which is circled by glass-enclosed office space. The million square foot, 15-story building hosts many community events inside its lobby and at its doorstep.

The bold design has won numerous awards including: AIA Michigan Honor Award; Engineering Society of Detroit, Design Award; IIDA Michigan Interior Design Excellence Awards for: Creative Use of Architectural Details, Creative Use of Color, Creative Use of Lighting. It also has been a finalist for the Urban Land Institute Award of Excellence.
