SF in Michigan Modern Book

September 2016

Michigan Modern: Design That Shaped America is an impressive Hardback coffee table book, collection of important essays touching on all aspects of Michigan’s architecture and design heritage.

The Great Lakes State has always been known for its contributions to twentieth-century manufacturing, but it’s only beginning to receive wide attention for its contributions to Modern design and architecture. Brian D. Conway, Michigan’s State Historic Preservation Officer, and Amy L. Arnold, project manager for Michigan Modern, have curated nearly thirty essays and interviews from a number of prominent architects, academics, architectural historians, journalists, and designers, including historian Alan Hess, designers Mira Nakashima, Ruth Adler Schnee, and Todd Oldham, and architect Gunnar Birkerts, describing Michigan’s contributions to Modern design in architecture, automobiles, furniture and education.

It is an privilege and honor to see Carl Sundberg and Monte Ferar’s design studio, Sundberg-Ferar, featured in it. We are so proud!
