Look for this workshop
next season!

Maybe you’re checking your phone, maybe you’re thinking about an upcoming test or soccer game, or maybe you’re listening to your favorite song — anyway, you don’t know how you’ve done it, but you’ve arrived at 826michigan without paying much attention to your route. This happens every day; we walk through downtown and pass the same great things and the same problems, often without taking much notice. In this workshop, our job will be to notice more — we’ll observe a city we know well through new perspectives, generating research questions, and looking for answers through hands-on research (yes, that means a field trip walking through downtown!). We’ll make our findings into maps and think about some important questions we might normally ignore: What places do you really like in Ann Arbor? If you could add anything, what would it be and where? What would make it easier to get around? How would you fill empty space? We’ll also get the chance to talk to urban planners about why these questions matter, not only to folks in the planning field, but to all thinkers and researchers, like us!

This workshop was created in partnership with the Agora Journal of Urban Planning and Design staff and writers.
