Course Detail

Term Winter 2017
Class ARCH 509
Class Title Museum Design: Industrial Manufacturing in Detroit
Description This is a project-based course for the design of an Industrial Manufacturing Museum for the 600 Randolph Building (Detroit) in collaboration with several community entities that are interested in sponsoring an automobile related museum in downtown. This will encompass the design of automobiles and other manufacturing processes in a Detroit.

For Winter Semester we will be engaged in preprogramming activities and conceptual design for this new Museum that will include educational and community spaces.

The course will involve active participation in the study and evaluation of existing facilities, meetings with the ‘client’ representatives for the project, review of exemplary design prototypes, and development of ideas and design recommendations for the new space. We will take one or two benchmarking visits to similar facilities. These activities will be supplemented with readings in theory and methods relevant to museum design.

Project deliverables will include a formal report of background and conceptual design recommendations to be presented to the client group, and compiled in a printed/online document. This project will present fresh ideas and new directions in museum design.
