Alumna Viola Ago (M.Arch ’13) is the 2016-17 Muschenheim Fellow at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. This prestigious fellowship offers emerging practitioners the opportunity to develop a body of work while teaching at the University. Ago will spend one year in residence instructing several classes in addition to pursuing her fellowship research.
“Taking the time to construct your research in terms of theory and execution is important to a young architect’s development into the discipline,” said Ago. “An opportunity like the Muschenheim Fellowship is paramount to that development. My research will explore possibilities of the model and the drawing being of the same thing; in an attempt to overcome typical 3D model-to-drawing-to-production techniques that resulted from the recent rise of the digital."
