FIVE FELLOWS – Young Architects Buy Detroit Home

We’re heading back to Detroit today, for another UM Taubman School project.  This one was a shot at revitalizing a dead home.  The students bought a house, more like a box, for $500, and created multiple interventions within the home.  Each one seeks to create a unique moment within the home.  Take a look!

Detroit Installation- University of Michigan

Check out this small installation on the facade of an old store in Detroit.  Created from metal triangles, the facade maintains security of the space within, while at the same time allowing natural light to penetrate.  This is a great project, and a pretty great way to draw attention to an area at a smaller local scale.
