From the front flap:
Kahn rapidly established himself in the early twentieth century as an architect capable of responding to the new demands of mass production. He employed a patented system of reinforced concrete, which had been developed by his brother, an engineer. Guided by functionalist principles and a sense of manufacturing organizations, Kahn anticipated assembly line operations and developed innovative characteristics for the modern factory.
Featured in these pages are Kahn's designs for the Ford Motor Company River Rouge Plant, Dearborn, Michigan; Burroughs Adding Machine Company, Detroit, Michigan; Tractor Plant, Stalingrad, Russia; General Motors Building, Chicago World's Fair; and Kellogg Company, Battle Creek, Michigan.
Through incisive text by Federico Bucci, Albert Kahn brings to light the novelty of Kahn's work and his advancement of the machine aesthetic. Over ninety black-and-white photographs and drawings illustrate the projects designed by "the architect of Ford."
