100 Essential Architecture Books

MAF AIA-MI 


Baldwin Public Library is honored to host the Rae Dumke Collection: 100 Essential Architecture Books, generously funded by the Rae Dumke Endowment. Rae Dumke, Hon. AIA, is former Executive Director of the American Institute of Architects, Michigan; The American Institute of Architects, Detroit; and The Michigan Architectural Foundation. She currently serves on the MAF Board of Trustees. Upon her retirement, an endowment was established in her name through contributions to the MAF. The Rae Dumke Collection of 100 Essential Architecture Books was developed by a MAF Committee with suggested architecture titles from architects and others from around the U.S. Through an endowment made to the Baldwin Library this collection is housed at Baldwin and the books are available statewide through MeLCat. The opening reception for the 100 Essential Architecture Books collection was held on June 11, 2014, at the Baldwin Library. A video of the official comments--including statements by Doug Koschik, Rae Dumke, Stephen Vogel and Gene Hopkins--can be viewed here.
