Biography

Architect Albert Kahn was a native German from Rhauen, whose family immigrated to the United States in 1880. He received his professional training as an apprentice with the architectural firm of Mason and Rice in Detroit, and then became one of the most important American industrial architects of his time. Besides his numerous buildings for the automotive industry in Detroit and Michigan (Packard, General Motors, Ford), he also built over 500 factories in the former Soviet Union from 1929-32. He also later worked in Brazil, Sweden, France, China, Japan and Australia. The company Kahn founded is still active in the 21st century and operates worldwide.
