Ford Rotunda

The ford Rotunda is a lost landmark that is still remembered fondly. Architect Albert Kahn—who designed many Ford factories and buildings- designed the building for Ford's exhibit at the 1933–34 "Century of Progress" World's Fair in Chicago. Kahn designed the building's exterior with grooved and stacked lines to suggest the look of automobile gears. After the fair, the 110-foot-tall, 214-foot-wide Rotunda was reassembled in Dearborn. The Rotunda hosted meetings, banquets, auto exhibits, and seasonal displays for many years until a fire destroyed the building in 1962.
