Albert and Julius Kahn: Inventing the Modern Factory

The development of efficient and fireproof industrial facilities in the early 20th century was almost entirely the work of two brothers, Albert and Julius Kahn. Two key innovations were required, a practical method of building with reinforced concrete and an efficiently organized architectural operation that included engineering capabilities–the Kahn brothers provided both. These advances helped make the United States the most efficient industrial nation in the world prior to WWII.
