“Cranbrook’s world-renowned campus is a treasure-trove of history, architecture, craftsmanship, design, and beauty. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989, the campus is a living collection of masterworks by architects such as Albert Kahn, Eliel Saarinen, Rafael Moneo, and Billie Tsien and Tod Williams. It isn’t just stunning architecture and sweeping vistas you will see at Cranbrook; the attention to design and detail by Cranbrook artisans are present in the intricate brickwork patterns in walkways and buildings, the ironwork of the gates, and the exquisite statuary that decorates the campus. The grounds of Cranbrook have been walked by some of the most influential people in the worlds of art and design, and the Schools and Academy of Art continue to educate innovative and creative minds.” Website
