Course Detail

Term Winter 2017
Class ARCH 603
Class Title The Curated University: Exhibiting UM�s Neotechnical Past
Description In this project-based seminar, students will research, design, and execute a Bicentennial exhibition for the gallery at Taubman College, to be mounted April 2017. This exhibition, entitled �Presence Past: The UM Campus as Archive� will highlight two noteworthy periods of modernization within the history of the university�s built environment: the Committee of Five�s interventions during the 1920s and the construction of North Campus through the 1950s and �60s. Students will create exhibits that critically engage the past, using dynamic digital displays and visualizations to evoke UM�s historical relationship with the neotechnical landscapes of industrial Detroit and participation in midcentury American militarization. The target constituency of this seminar are PhD students in architecture and historical disciplines, who contribute critical faculties in analysis and research; and MArchs and MFAs, who will bring applicable skills in design and making. The collaborative, project-driven paradigm of this class should appeal both to graduate students pursuing careers in academia, and those looking to broaden their skill sets to appeal to a wider job market. No previous experience in digital humanities or design is necessary, though students at all levels of skill are welcome.
