PRESENTED BY CRANBROOK CENTER FOR COLLECTIONS AND RESEARCH IN AFFILIATION WITH CRANBROOK ACADEMY OF ART
Join the Cranbrook for Collections and Research Collections Fellow Kevin Adkisson in this six-week lecture series on the history of American architecture. Using Cranbrook and Detroit as a microcosm of larger developments in American architecture, this series will introduce ways of seeing and understanding the built environment.

The 60-minute, image-based lectures will be a survey of four centuries of American architecture, with a focus on the long arc of modernism. Taking architecture to mean all types of buildings, at all variety of scales, the course will examine architecture in order to better understand ourselves and our history. All levels of architecture knowledge are welcome.
