9:00AM — Cowgill Lobby
"Reflections" is an exhibition of prints which respond to observations of architecture in Lafayette Park, Detroit, Michigan.
In the project of Lafayette Park, architect Mies Van der Rohe collaborates with developer Herbert Greenwald, urban planner Ludwig Hilberseimer, and landscape architect Alfred Caldwell.
Collaboration is crucial to the understanding of existing conditions, planning of new infrastructure(s), and projection of architecture within its proper scale, resulting in an exemplar in the context of urban and socio-economic conditions of the city of Detroit.
Arian Korkuti, a Virginia Tech PhD Candidate in Architecture, has conducted his research on the development at Lafayette Park, and visited the site, during his tenure as a Visiting Professor at the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design, University of Arkansas.
The exhibition is composed of sixteen high-definition prints on aluminum plates. Commissioning of prints was made possible, in part, with the financial support of the Dean’s office in the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design, University of Arkansas.
