Near Caledonia, a southern suburb of Grand Rapids, stands this abandoned steel pyramid-shaped building, looking like some futuristic spacecraft.

The grounds are overgrown, as this former research center sits in it's former glory for all roadtrippers to stop and gawk at.

It's referred to as the Steelcase Pyramid; Steelcase was a company that manufactured high-design office furniture; they built this oddity in 1989 but vacated the premises in 2010.
Too bad...this is an awesome building. This monster is seven stories high with a penthouse on the sixth floor, balconies, a former reflecting pool, and sub-level floors (kinda like underground bunkers) where researchers and developers could work and test new designs.
