Scale, Style, Function: How the Built Environment Has Changed Post-Socialism

Sonia Hirt, an alumnus of the University of Michigan MUP and Doctoral program, visited her alma mater last week to give a lecture titled, “Landscapes of Postmodernity: Changes in the Built Fabric of Central-East European Cities Since the End of Socialism.” This blog post is a summary of Hirt's lecture by AGORA staff member Michelle Bennett.

Grand Rapids: Mini Expanded Horizons – Art Transforms a City

During Fall Break this year, I joined several MUP classmates on a road trip to Grand Rapids (our mini version of the annual MUP Expanded Horizons trip). We were a small group, which meant that we could leisurely meander the city streets and make group decisions about which neighborhoods to explore, where to eat, and when to take a break to explore a venue or ponder an art installation. 

Getting Some Practice - Part 2: Dennis Johnson @ City of Chicago Department of Planning and Development

This fall, AGORA begins a blog series focused on UofM planning students' summer and other professional experiences in the planning field. UofM students work in an impressive range of planning roles, and we aim to highlight some of the ways we "get some practice". All of the blog pieces in this series are authored by students and provide an avenue for them to describe what may be their first experiences as practicing urban planners.
