Albert Kahn:  Innovation and Influence on  20th Century Architecture

The Albert Kahn Legacy Foundation is pleased to collaborate with the Detroit Historical Society to present “Albert Kahn: Innovation and Influence on 20th Century Architecture,” an exhibit celebrating the work and legacy of Detroit’s most important architect of the first half of the 20th century. Kahn’s work enabled the creation of America’s modern industrial enterprises and created iconic office and civic buildings, homes and religious structures. This exhibit tells the story of historically significant architecture and design that has stood the test of time in Detroit, in Michigan and around the world and inspired the streamlined modernist designs that followed.
