HISTORY OF AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE: DETROIT AND THE WORLD
Join Kevin Adkisson for the return of the Center’s popular History of American Architecture lecture series. The seventh annual installment will focus on the architecture of Detroit, studying the buildings, designers, and policymakers that shaped the city’s dramatic transformations from the late nineteenth century to today, and how Detroiters have influenced the course of architecture around the globe.
Each week will illuminate an aspect of Detroit’s unusually complex architectural fabric and the ways in which Detroiters have altered the history of architecture with a 75-minute, image-rich lecture that draws from the resources of Cranbrook Academy of Art Library and Cranbrook Archives. All levels of architecture knowledge are welcome to attend this series.
