Empty Pavilion Draws Blogosphere Buzz

In a follow-up to a previous news post, "Empty Pavilion", a Research Through Making Project by McLain Clutter and Kyle Reynolds was recently featured in the following blogs:

Has your work recently been featured in blogs that are part of the architecture or urban planning community? If so, let us know. Blogs are an effective way to attract attention to Taubman College and engage community conversation about the important work our faculty are doing.

The Empty Pavilion is a project by McLain Clutter and Kyle Reynolds, with a team of students from the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Ariel Poliner, Mike Sanderson and Nate van Wylan. The project was funding by the Taubman College Research Through Making grant program.

The Empty Pavilion is a meditation on Detroit's evacuated urban context and an experiment in the ability of architecture to make visible a latent public in the city. The project aspires to create an architecture that is physically and semantically empty, while solicitous of public interaction and imaginative projection. The creators of the Empty Pavilion have no specific use or meaning in mind – hoping instead that the project will invite unplanned occupancies and creative associations.
