Taubman College

Visiting Faculty

As part of the Charles Moore Visiting Professorship program, each winter term a prominent designer co-teaches the MUD studio with the faculty.

Charles Willard Moore graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in architecture in 1947. Moore developed a humanistic approach to architecture in which each design attempts to engage users within a clearly defined spatial environment. He shifted the design emphasis from architectural formalism to a re-examination of the nature and function of architecture in today's world. Instead of using architecture to moralize an ideal, he used it to generate an environment to stimulate the user. Moore was a teacher during much of his career, at the University of California at Berkeley, at Yale, and at the University of California Los Angeles.

Since 2001, the M.U.D. Program has welcomed distinguished practitioners and teachers to its studios as part of the Charles Moore Visiting Professorship. In 2009, the University of Michigan Netherlands Visiting Professor, Henco Bekkering (TU Delft) joined its fall-term studio and seminars.
