Designing Detroit June 20

Designing Detroit: Wirt Rowland and the Rise of Modern American Architecture. June 20, 7PM Library Atrium
Michigan Notable Books winning author Michael G. Smith will visit the library on June 20 to discuss his book Designing Detroit. In his book Smith analyzes Rowland’s achievements in building design and as a leader of Detroit’s architectural community throughout both World Wars and the Great Depression. The interdependence of architecture with the city’s fluctuating economic prosperity and population growth is explored, illuminating the conditions for good architecture and the arts in general. This will be a fascinating look at an aspect of Detroit’s history.
