Albert Kahn, considered by many to be the foremost American industrial architect of his day, is sometimes called the architect of Detroit. He designed the Packard Plant, Fisher Building, Ford’s Highland Park plant, Detroit Free Press and Detroit News buildings, Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, and many other notable structures. After successfully designing the Stalingrad Tractor Plant in the U.S.S.R. the year before, his Detroit-based firm was signed as consulting architects for all industrial construction in the Soviet Union on this day in 1930
