Josh Lipnik, an architecture photographer, speaks with CBC Windsor Morning host Nav Nanwa about the best of Windsor.

Some of the buildings he showcases, like the Hiram Walker head office and Willistead Manor, were designed by famed Detroit architect Albert Kahn.

“I’ve seen so much of his work in Detroit,” he said. “It was interesting getting to see that whole area of ​​town on the other side of the river.”
