Practice Session No. 4 Workshop, "Bowstring"

February 17, 2017 at 9:00 am - February 20, 2017 at 6:00 pm


Founder and Principal, Mark Lee, and Director of Design, Anton Schneider of Johnston Marklee will lead twenty-four students in a four-day design charette. Located in the  College Gallery, the work-in-progress is on view to the Taubman community and the public.

Practice Sessions is part of the University of Michigan’s Third Century Initiative, which funds experimental pedagogies in a bid to change how teaching and learning happen within the bounds of the institution. Over a five- year period, ten architectural practices will be invited to Taubman College to run a practice session. Each session centers on an immersive four-day design charette that culminates in a juried review and exhibition. These sessions are not workshops in the conventional sense. Invited practices are not selected to repeat a known and routinized working method in collaboration with students. Instead, invitees are called to work in an experimental mode, where everything is subject to the pressures of practice on design, and where practice and the academy intersect.

This workshop is full.
