Architecture

Cranbrook has a rich history of modern architecture. Our unique campus includes buildings designed by world‐renowned architects, including Eliel and Eero Saarinen, Albert Kahn, Rafael Moneo, Tod Williams, and Billie Tsien. Looking at these seminal structures, you’ll design your own architectural and topographic models with emphasis placed on the relationship between form, structure, and the surrounding environment. You’ll learn the fundamental concepts of architecture, design, and engineering by examining structures, materials, and technologies exemplified in both historical and contemporary architecture.
