We invite you to watch our NOMA Homecoming | Detroit 50 commemorative video, written and performed by Detroit native, Jessica Care Moore, with original music by John Bunkley, also a Detroiter. The film was commissioned by NOMA and executive produced by Kimberly Dowdell and Tiffany Brown. Commercial real estate firm, Bedrock Detroit sponsored and provided in-kind services to produce the powerful video that we are all so proud to share. Many thanks to Bedrock and the entire NOMA team for helping to make this possible. We are NOMA…the frontline of architecture begins here.
