JUNE 9, 2012 -- Jennifer Baross and Jack P. Johnson are currently using crowdsourcing to fund their documentary on little known architect Corrado Parducci. In 1924, the young architect came to work with Albert Khan in Detroit for a quick two months to work on the First State Bank and the Security Trust buildings on Griswold. Parducci would end up staying here for the rest of his life, working on dozens of buildings in Detroit including the interior of the Masonic Temple, the Guardian, the Penobscot, the Fisher building and many more. Examples of his work can be found via this YouTube video. His portfolio is nearly 600 projects deep, focused on Detroit but featured across the country as well.
In exchange for a bit of support to helping to complete their documentary, Baross and Johnson are offering t-shirts, copies of the final DVD, signed books and even a private tour for you and three friends of Parducci’s work around the city.
