TAUBMAN COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE AND URBAN PLANNING
University of Michigan architecture students, faculty create socially distanced courtyard
ANN ARBOR – On a typical fall day, art and architecture students are seen socializing and studying in the University of Michigan’s Art and Architecture Building courtyard. The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we gather, so students and staff at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning found a creative way to transform the popular space. (E.Bronson/Michigan Photography)The students and faculty designed the tables with support from Taubman College’s Digital Fabrication Lab and woodshop. Some classes are taught using the tables, which also offer an informal gathering space for groups wanting to socially distance. The outcome is informal, economical and droll.”Students and faculty at Taubman College and the Stamps School can book the tables through Oct. 29.
