Kahn's restoration of the historic pool, lagoon, and landscape at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Estate was covered by The Architect's Newspaper. Matt Hickman did an excellent job explaining the project and its significance. Scroll down to read more.


"A major landscape restoration and swimming pool rehabilitation project made its public debut earlier this week at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, an 87-acre lakefront estate and museum situated just a few minutes north of the Detroit city line in the tony lakefront community of Grosse Pointe Shores.


"Led by Albert Kahn Associates, the revamp is the second major capital project to complete as part of a comprehensive master plan for the National Historic Landmark–designated site on Lake St. Clair.


"Considering Kahn’s role in designing the Ford House, and with Jensen its grounds, nearly a century ago, it’s only fitting that his namesake Detroit firm, now based out of Kahn’s Art Deco masterpiece the Fisher Building, has returned to execute a landscape restoration project focused on the southeast corner of the property."
