Workshop Begins Work on the Iconic Michigan Union

Workshop Architects, along with partners IDS and Hartman-Cox Architects, was selected for the programming and design phases for the renovation of the historic Michigan Union at the University of Michigan. Conceived on the cusp of the student union movement and designed in 1915 by the Chicago firm, Pond & Pond Architects, the Michigan Union stands today as one of the foremost institutional and architectural examples of a true campus center. That it is still cherished as a campus icon is testimony to the spirit of the architecture and the ideas behind its creation. We share the University of Michigan's commitment to the preservation and renewal of the Michigan Union as a vital center for campus community, and we are honored to partner with them on this extraordinary project.
