My spring allergies have gotten the best of me today. So instead of a regular post, I’m going to share some of my photos of the Cranbrook Schools. I toured the campus this afternoon.
Cranbrook Schools is a private boarding school (PK – 12) in Bloomfield Hills, outside of Detroit. It has an endowment fund of about $233 million, which is one of the largest of American boarding schools. In 1989, the campus was designated a National Historic Landmark.
The photos are in the order in which they were taken.
A man happen to be playing a violin in the space below.
The stone shingles below get smaller as they move up the roof to give the illusion that the building is larger than it really is.
And here are my fellow architecture nerds, Matthew and Rick.
