ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH

Taken 1979, Detroit, Michigan, United States
(Library of Congress)

"William Henry Kessler was an American Modernist architect, studying under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius at Harvard and the Chicago Institute of Design. In the late 60's, Kessler would found his own firm working on a range of projects from public housing to academic institutes and hospital. Kessler's colour palette of primary colour is a trademark of his projects."

– Jordan J. Lloyd

"The underground tunnel/concourse connects the hospital and clinic to the other medical facilities in the complex... the concourse is constructed of 15 ft. diameter precast concrete pipe with a steel and concrete decking for the walking surface. The ceiling is brilliantly reflective striated aluminium painted five shades of blue. Lighting is directed upward to exploit the reflectivity of the curved aluminium surface."

– David van Oyen A.I.A, project architect
