The Legacy of Albert Kahn
Known principally for his development of modern industrial architecture, Kahn also made significant contributions in the areas of commercial, civic, institutional, and domestic architecture. Dividing the early and late works, each chapter is a chronological presentation of designs within a given architectural category. Black-and-white photographs and illustrations abound.
Eclectic and visionary, the man whose legacy included the General Motors and Fisher Buildings, the Rouge Plant, and a considerable number of buildings on the University of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus continues to be a source of inspiration for a new generation of architects.
