The Sun over the U-M School of Kinesiology

I Spy: July 2021

by Sally Bjork

From the August, 2021 issue

"I spy the emblem over the door at 830 North University," says Melina Adler. Or, as Cathy Chow refers to it, "the lovely sun motif." The photo "shows a detail above the entrance to the newly renovated U-M School of Kinesiology," writes Ivana Tullett. "Formerly the Edward Kraus building of Natural Science ... [it] was completed in 1915," writes David Karl. With its solid design and lots of windows, it "is yet another example of the wonderful architect Albert Kahn," who believed that daylight was beneficial to learning.

"In more recent times," Karl continues, it "underwent an expansion to accommodate the increasing interest in kinesiology which is now the 4th largest" undergraduate enrollment at U-M. "After so much time seeing the construction fencing," writes Barb Tester, "it was nice to see the building entrance again with the sun" showing.

"The original [in the clue: This sun will shine above The Original] refers to the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair," writes Ken Koral, "which will have booths along North University." With the fairs back this year, Tester says, "It will seem more like July in Ann Arbor again."
