Impressive Structure Designed to House Students of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan

By • Jan 30, 2018

The Alfred Taubman Wing is a 36,000 square foot expansion built for the College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. It was designed by the American architectural firm Preston Scott Cohen, which is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The project was completed in 2017 and is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

The architectural firm was presented with a very clear challenge, that of balancing the creation of a vast expansion that would extend from the existing architecture as well as act like a center of circulation for all students and faculty.

Modern structure surrounded by nature

The exterior structure is done in an earthy gray color and a modern style, with a roof characterized by jagged lines. The lower level has a length of clear glass walls, so that light flows in and the lines between indoor and outdoor are blurred.

The interior is spacious and luminous, with a ceiling pierced by lines of skylights that allow natural light to flow in, so that the interior is easily illuminated in such a way that energy is saved and the structure’s carbon footprint is reduced. The 36,000 square foot structure includes a multi-purpose common area, a studio, a classroom, faculty offices, student lounges, and labs.
