Detroit has some of the best architecture in the world. But which building is the best?

We’ve launched a new bracket challenge to find out which of Detroit’s iconic and celebrated buildings is the best. Why? Just because. We all need something fun to do these days.

There are so, so many buildings to choose from, but we’ve landed on the top 32. To contain the list a bit, we’ve left out famous homes and churches, and stuck with buildings -- like, skyscrapers, museums, etc., and they have to be still standing, like Elton John.

We’re into Round 2 of the bracket, now down to 16 buildings. No surprises up top, as the Fisher and Guardian buildings easily advance as top seeds. All top seeds advanced with two exceptions -- the Detroit Athletic Club, a No. 11 seed, knocked off the No. 6 seed Book Cadillac, and the No. 9 seed, Belle Isle Conservatory beat out the No. 8 seeded David Stott Building.

We’ve got some big matchups in Round 2 -- voting ends Thursday morning. We’ve had more than 11,000 votes in this challenge so far!

Prizes: Just by voting, you’ll be entered to win a $100 gift card to Jax Car Wash (four in each round) and one grand prize of $500! Thanks to our sponsor, FanDuel Sportsbook -- Make your first bet risk free up to $1,000.
