Taubman College Announces 2009-2010 Architecture Fellows

Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning has announced the 2009-2010 Michigan Architecture Fellows. The fellowship program, which was originated under the leadership of Dean Emeritus Robert Metcalf and Kent Hubbell, enable architecture and urban planning practitioners and scholars to be in residence at Taubman College during an academic year and engage in research.
