• Alden B. Dow
    Alden B. Dow, the son of the founder of The Dow Chemical Company, started designing structures with leaves when he was eight. He opened an architectural office in 1934 in his hometown of Midland, Michigan, and added on a home for his young family to move into in 1941. Open today as a learning center for design, architecture, and creativity, and designated as a National Historic Landmark, visitors are inspired by the blending of nature into inside spaces. Designed with "honesty, humility and enthusiasm," three of the guiding principles in all his future works, the building is a classic in the successful and delicate blending of landscape and architecture. In addition to over sixty homes in Midland, Michigan, Alden B. Dow designed many residences in other parts of the United States. During World War II, he designed and personally supervised the construction of the entire town of Lake Jackson, Texas, as his father’s chemical company expanded there and needed homes for plant workers.

In recent years, James has concentrated on food, beverage and architecture. His interest in architectural subjects grew out of his own efforts restoring a Fromann & Jebsen designed bank in Chicago, a mid-century modern home in Glencoe by the noted mid-century modern architects, Keck & Keck, and his repurposing of several industrial buildings in Chicago as studios in support of his advertising business. His passion for preservation led him to volunteer his services to the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust in Oak Park, Illinois, for whom he has documented the buildings on the Trust’s annual internationally-attended house walk, Wright Plus. There he met architectural writer Patrick F. Cannon in 2004, with whom he collaborated on five books: Hometown Architect - The Complete Buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park and River Forest, Illinois Prairie Metropolis - Chicago and the Birth of a New American Home Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple Louis Sullivan - Creating a New American Architecture The Space Within – Inside Great Chicago Buildings In addition to the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust, he has donated images to the Unity Temple Restoration Foundation, the Society of Architectural Historians, the Auditorium Theater, the Pleasant Home Foundation, the Paul Schweikher Preservation Trust, the Richard Nickel Committee, the Chicago Club, both the Clarke and the Glessner House Museums, Preservation Chicago, the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy, Harboe Architects and the Holy Trinity Cathedral Restoration Project. James is currently at work on a new book project for the Chicago Art Deco Society tentatively entitled 'Art Deco Chicago' which will endeavor to showcase the top 100 best examples of the style relative to Chicago.
