RESEARCH

Serious Scholars… Budding Architects… Design Enthusiasts…

All are welcome to take the plunge into the world of primary resource materials. Lose yourself for an hour or for a day and discover the virtual laboratory of ideas within the Alden B. Dow Archives, where your question is just the first step in exploring new ideas and discovering answers and new questions.

Books and journals in the Alden B. Dow Home & Studio are available for on-site study and use by community members and researchers. 

The Alden B. Dow Home & Studio has partnered with the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library to make the books that architect Alden B. Dow consulted and drew inspiration from throughout his career searchable through the Library’s online catalog.

To schedule an appointment or for more information about discovering and accessing items in the collections, contact the Alden B. Dow Archives at archives@abdow.org or 989-839-2744.
