Architecture Fellows Detroit House recognized in Time Magazine’s Detroit Blog, ModelD and Detroit NPR Station

Time Magazine’s The Detroit Blog and ModelD (Detroit) recognized the five architecture fellows, Catie Newell, Ellie Abrons, Meredith Miller, Thomas Moran and Rosalyne Shieh, from the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning that purchased a foreclosed house in Detroit – 13178 Moran – from a city auction for $500. The five fellows purchased the home to design projects full scale.

The Time Magazine Detroit blog posted “Bringing a Dead House Back to Life” on April 26, 2010. The blog recognizes an inspiring report of what one project can mean for the architecture, the architects working on it, and a city block.

ModelD (Detroit), a publication part of Issue Media Group, posted the article “University of Michigan’s Five Fellows turn foreclosed house into architecture project” on April 27, 2010. This article emphasizes research opportunities existence in Detroit neighborhoods and they can coexist for good.

Detroit’s station, WDET 101.9 FM, interviewed three fellows, Ellie Abrons, Catie Newell and Rosalyne Shieh, on the The Craig Fahle Show, April 4, 2010.

Listen to the architecture fellows talk about their project and experience.

The Architect’s Newspaper also wrote a piece about the project titled “Domestic Intervention.” It was published May 20, 2010 and features many photographs of the house. Portions of this story were reposted by Architizer.com here.

Additionally, the Wayne State student newspaper posted a picture story about the project here, MLive.com covered it here, and FastCompany.com reported on it here.
