Michigan has always been known for its contributions to twentieth-century manufacturing, but it’s only beginning to receive wide attention for its contributions to Modern design and architecture. This book is an impressive collection of important essays touching on all aspects of this heritage from the recent past, throughout the state and for its largest city, Detroit. Two co-editors from Michigan’s State Historic Preservation Officer and the Michigan Modern project have curated nearly thirty essays and interviews from a number of prominent architects, academics, architectural historians, journalists, and designers, including historian Alan Hess, designers Mira Nakashima, Ruth Adler Schnee, and Todd Oldham, and architect Gunnar Birkerts. They describe Michigan’s contributions to Modern design in architecture, automobiles, furniture and education.
