  • The Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation

Honor Educate Preserve

The Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in 2020, honors and celebrates the life, innovations, and global impact of architect Albert Kahn.

Through recognition, advocacy, and education, we bear witness to how the buildings and key innovations designed and engineered by Albert Kahn and his firm have endeared and inspired generations.

We do this through:
Maintaining the Albert Kahn Archive, a trove of Kahn’s designs, blueprints, papers, and images, in cooperation with Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., to serve as a resource for researchers and preservationists.

Establishing the Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation website, which provides information about the life and work of Albert Kahn and showcases a calendar of events for foundation members and the public.

Offering a number of events including:

  • Walking, bicycle and bus tours of Kahn buildings and other locations that are an important part of Detroit’s architectural and automotive history
  • Films, lectures, and educational programs
  • Exhibitions

Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation members are the core of our organization. Members receive early notification on many of our events, special discounts, and more.
