The Planning and Architecture Research Group (P+ARG) was created over a decade ago by and for the doctoral students at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Our mission is to enhance the academic and social experiences of students engaged in research across the college’s programs through collaboration. We seek to foster community among planning and architecture students in order to sustain an exchange of ideas within and between our disciplines and subfields. We are open to all students at the University of Michigan who are interested in engaging with issues of the built environment. To sustain our interdisciplinary conversations, we receive funding from both Rackham and Taubman College with which we hold workshops and events throughout the year as well as our bi-annual conference.
