Normally, skateboarding in an almost 100-year-old building is generally frowned upon.
But last week, a half pipe was erected inside the building in front of the Fisher Theater and the skateboarders were welcomed.
The half-pipe was built in metro Detroit. Artists used bright colors and nature-inspired designs to reflect styles seen throughout the Fisher’s interior. It’s on a 4-foot-high platform and stands about 8.5 feet high.

The Fisher Halfpipe event was meant to bring people together and celebrate American invention, said Everard Findlay, chief innovation officer of the Platform, a Detroit development firm that co-owns the building in New Center.
