Logo of Detroit Institute of Arts Theatre

A prominent feature of the 1927 Detroit Institute of Arts building is the 1200 seat auditorium, designed by Paul Philippe Cret as a venue for film, lectures and live performances. Now regarded as one of the most important architects of large-scale American civil engineering projects during the early 20th century, Cret was fluent in both modern as well as neoclassic styles. He was also a pioneering industrial designer, whose visionary Burlington Pioneer Zephyr streamliner locomotive is now on permanent display inside the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. For the DIA Auditorium Cret collaborated with Detroit architect C. Howard Crane, designer of several lavish Detroit theatres of the 1920s such as Detroit's Fox Theatre. The auditorium combines Cret's elegant sense of space and occasion with Crane's theater engineering sophistication.
