Practice Sessions is part of the University of Michigan’s Third Century Initiative that funds experimental pedagogies in a bid to change how teaching and learning happen within the bounds of the institution. Over a five-year period, ten architectural practices will be invited to Taubman College to run a practice session. Each session centers on an immersive four-day design charette that culminates in a juried review and exhibition.
For this session, Neil Denari will run the workshop session and the guest critics invited to discuss the work at its conclusion are Dora Epstein Jones (Executive Director, A+D Museum, Los Angeles) and Ana Miljacki (Associate Professor, MIT). Denari is a renowned architect from Los Angeles, perhaps best known for HL23, a residential building on the Highline in New York. (Workshop in the gallery, October 7 -9; review October 10)
The session is open to all architecture and urban design students, undergraduate and graduate. The enrollment capacity is 20 students and selection will be based on a modified lottery that ensures a diverse mix across degrees and years.
