Grand Opening of the A. Alfred Taubman Wing of the Art & Architecture Building
Incoming Taubman College Dean Jonathan Massey invites you to join us as we celebrate the opening of the A. Alfred Taubman Wing of the Art and Architecture Building in the University of Michigan's Bicentennial year. The celebration will include a brief program including remarks by University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel, a performance by the University of Michigan Marching Band, and a building open house with refreshments.
Begun in 2009, the Taubman College building expansion and renovation is the result of many years of faculty, student and staff planning. The building addition provides an additional 36,000 square feet to our existing 72,000 square foot facility, and the project included a renovation of the current building. The building plan was funded by a major gift from the late A. Alfred Taubman, as well as a generous gift from the late King C. Stutzman, matching funds from the Office of the President of the University of Michigan, and funds from the Provost Office and the Office of the Chief Financial Officer.
The A. Alfred Taubman Wing of Taubman College will provide:
- 5,700 square foot commons space for reviews, symposia, lectures, and events
- 8 capstone and group study rooms
- 2,400 square foot state-of-the-art classroom
- 5,500 square foot of additional studio space
- New and renovated faculty offices
- Architecture and Urban Planning student lounges
- Ph.D. Colloquium Room
