"Exhibition on View: Drawing Codes: Experimental Protocols of Architectural Representation": The University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

  community member   < less

Emerging technologies of design and production have opened up new ways to engage with traditional practices of architectural drawing. The twenty-four experimental drawings commissioned for this exhibition explore the impact of such technologies on the relationship between code and drawing: how rules and constraints inform the ways architects document, analyze, represent, and design the built environment.
Each drawing engages with at least one of the below prompts that begin to expand the notion of code as it relates to architectural design and representation:
Code as generative constraint. Restrictive codes often govern what is permitted and what is prohibited. Examples of this include building codes, urban codes, zoning codes, accessibility codes, and energy codes. How can such constraints become generative, opening up opportunities for design and representation?
Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, 2000 Bonisteel Blvd, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. Free. 734-764-1300. taubmancollegecommunications@umich.edu https://taubmancollege.umich.edu/events/2018/03/07/exhibition-view-drawing-codes-experimental-protocols-architectural-representation [map]

"Exhibition on View: Research Through Making": The University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.

  community member   < less

Since its inception in 2009, Research Through Making enables faculty to engage in architecture research or creative projects that are predicated on making. Seed funding is competitively awarded annually for up to five projects. Faculty collaborate with students to produce projects that ultimately lead to a public exhibition in the Liberty Annex Gallery. Through the years as the projects have evolved, the research has broadened and many have gone on to win national awards (P/A Awards, R+D Awards, ACSA Awards, AIA awards, etc.) and be published, presented and exhibited through out the world. Research Through Making is one of the most innovative architecture research programs in the country, and provides important funding that allows students to work with faculty on innovative research projects and bring that knowledge back to the classroom and into their futures as designers.
Liberty Research Annex, 305 W. Liberty Street. Free. 734-764-1300. taubmancollegecommunications@umich.edu https://taubmancollege.umich.edu/events/2018/03/13/exhibition-view-research-through-making [map]
