The Scandalous Rise and Stunning Fall of a Minneapolis Masterpiece

2018Author:Larry Millett

The story of one of Minnesota’s most famous and most mourned buildings, set against the history of downtown Minneapolis

Against the thrumming backdrop of turn-of-the-century Minneapolis, architectural critic and historian Larry Millett recreates the impressive rise, and eventual fall, of the massive Metropolitan Building. Metropolitan Dreams is a tale of urban growing pains and architectural ghosts and of colorful, sometimes criminal characters amid the grandeur and squalor of building and rebuilding a city’s skyline.
