The Jewish News: Foundation Launch

The Jewish News just published an article on the newly formed Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation. Scroll down for the link to the entire article.

“Many Detroiters have visited the Fisher Building, Bonstelle Theatre or the University of Michigan’s Hill Auditorium without realizing that they were designed by Albert Kahn.”

“He hasn’t gotten his place among famous Detroiters — his story doesn’t go everywhere although his work does,” says Heidi Pfannes, senior associate and director of business development at Albert Kahn Associates Inc. and president of the new Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation board.

“Last year, a group of local historians, architects, archivists and other interested volunteers established the Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation to ‘celebrate and preserve the legacy of Albert Kahn, often described as the foremost American industrial architect of the 20th century.'”
