Excerpt: Building the Modern World: Albert Kahn in Detroit

"Kahn lived the life of five architects, and in the process did more to shape the twentieth century than almost any other designer. His ascent from poverty, his outsized influence on both industry and architecture, and his proximity to epochal world events make his life story a tableau reflecting America’s rise to power."

Excerpt from Michael H. Hodges' BUILDING THE MODERN WORLD: ALBERT KAHN IN DETROIT just dropped on Nu?Detroit!
