A tour of Lansing's Albert Kahn building

  Architect Albert Kahn was famous for his Michigan buildings, among them Detroit’s Fisher Building and General Motors Headquarters, Ann Arbor’s Hill Auditorium and the many functional but distinctive factories and industrial facilities throughout Detroit and the U.S. Lansing is home to one Kahn building, the former Motor Wheel Factory.

The Motor Wheel factory has been converted into modern loft-style condominiums. WKAR’s Peter Whorf recently met with Lansing-based architecture writer and blogger John T. Madden to talk about Motor Wheel and Albert Kahn.
