International Style "Gothic"

Yamasaki's style is sometimes described as "decorative" International Style.

A closer view and the entrance

Stylized modern "Gothic" is evident in the pointed arches and windows.

Like the Doge's palace in Venice, the Education Building has a loggia wrapped around it, a convenient addition, given Detroit's hard winters.

Other works by Yamasaki on this site include: Conservatory of Music (Oberlin College), De Roy Auditorium (Wayne State University), Japan Center (San Francisco), King Building (Oberlin College), McGregor Memorial Conference Center (Wayne State University), Michigan Consolidated Gas Company Office Building, Warner Concert Hall (Oberlin College) and World Trade Center.
