Event description

Description

Author Michael H. Hodges will discuss his new book Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit.

Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit tells the story of the German-Jewish immigrant who rose from poverty to become one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. Kahn’s buildings not only define downtown Detroit, but his early car factories for Packard Motor and Ford revolutionized the course of industry and architecture alike.

Anyone interested in architecture, architectural history, or the history of Detroit will relish this event.

Michael H. Hodges covers fine arts for the Detroit News. His previous book, Michigan’s Historic Railroad Stations (Wayne State University Press, 2012), was a 2013 Library of Michigan Notable Book.
