Building the modern world : Albert Kahn in Detroit by Michael H Hodges( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Employing archival sources unavailable to previous biographers, Building the Modern World follows Kahn from his apprenticeship at age thirteen with a prominent Detroit architecture firm to his death. With material gleaned from two significant Kahn archives--the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library and the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution--Hodges paints the most complete picture yet of Kahn's remarkable rise. Special emphasis is devoted to his influence on architectural modernists, his relationship with Henry Ford, his intervention to save the Diego Rivera murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts (unreported until now), and his work laying down the industrial backbone for the Soviet Union in 1929-31 as consulting architect for the first Five Year Plan. Kahn's ascent from poverty, his outsized influence on both industry and architecture, and his proximity to epochal world events make his life story a tableau of America's rise to power."--Publisher's website

Albert Kahn - Architekt der Moderne by Dieter Marcello( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Kahn war vielleicht der einflussreichste Architekt des 20. Jahrhunderts. 1869 im Hunsrück geboren, begann er seine Karriere in den USA mit revolutionären Bauten für die Rüstungs- und Autoindustrie. Während der Grossen Depression in den USA wurde Kahn mit der Planung und Errichtung fast aller sowjetischen Industriekomplexe des sogenannten Ersten Fünf-Jahres-Plans beauftragt: 530 Fabriken in einem Zeitraum von zweieinhalb Jahren. Kahns Bauten sind Ausdruck der Hoffnungen und Enttäuschungen unserer Industriemoderne; sie bestimmten den Ausgang beider Weltkriege und prägten das neue Bauen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ihre Ästhetik wurde von den führenden Köpfen des deutschen Bauhauses übernommen und beeinflusste die Architektur des 20. Jahrhunderts im Ganzen. Kahn selbst hat sich zu dieser Entwicklung mit polemischer Schärfe geäussert. Mit teilweise unbekanntem Material aus US-amerikanischen und ehemals sowjetischen Archiven entwirft der Film ein breit angelegtes Bild vom Aufbruch unserer Industriemoderne und dem ihr eigenen Pathos
