This is an academic building (#1) developed for a fictitious Eastern Michigan University satellite campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is a residential college partly inspired by a building on the campus of Princeton. This building and its counterparts are to house, among other university programs, the new (fictitious) “Tyler Ward College of Architecture, Urban Planning and Design”, or “TWCAUP” for short.
I am not formally trained in architectural design, though I have made an attempt to articulate my vision for what type of architecture would fit the programmatic and academic needs of the site. The designs are based on a study of the historic typology of EMU core campus architecture. They are also heavily influenced by specific works of the architect and urban designer, Rob Krier.
Complete renders of this building and all others in their surrounding campus context can be found at: www.andrewarmbruster.com/geddesroadalbum1.htm
If you like the building please let me know by rating it. I’m looking forward to any and all comments, thanks! #andrew_armbruster #ann_arbor #architecture #eastern_Michigan_university #emu #Michigan #urban_design #urban_planning #Ypsilanti
