Home Claiming to be Designed by Yamasaki Asks $425K

New, 12 comments

Minoru Yamasaki, the architect famous for designing the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, worked and designed in Michigan for much of his career. While he is much more well known for educational and commercial buildings (there are four great ones on the Wayne State campus) he also left the area with Yamsaki-designed houses. A new listing in Palmer Woods asking $425,000 claims to be one of them. The 3,600 square foot home was built in 1956 and we're told interior photos will be posted later. Stay tuned and send intel if you know more.
UPDATE: 3:30 p.m. A tipster that grew up in the Yamasaki house down the street clarifies that this home was designed by Yamasaki's firm, but not the architect himself. Again, we don't have documentation and will keep you posted as we learn more.
