AS_BUILT: 38 As a new pedagogical model for thesis preparation at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College, a group of graduate students designed and built this intervention at an under-utilized site in Detroit. Critically examining the standard CMU-infill as a means to secure enclosure, this spatial skin reinterprets this function while also acting as a threshold for openness, views and light mediation.

I studied the southwest corner of the Walgreen Drama Center, which is well-known as the Glass Cube. The most significant feature of this corner is the spatial relationship and construction connection of its two corners and three walls. In structure, a interior concrete wall (16” thick) going through the whole height of the building, and two exterior wall enclosed the lower corner and upper corner, one wall of which is about 15” offset the other. The lower exterior wall is made by concrete and brick, and the upper wall is made by glass. I focused on different things for these two corner. For the upper one, since its materials are mostly glass and steel, it is open and easy to figure out the construction details. However, for there is no insulation on the glass wall, it is very cold inside. There is no activities or programs going on here, and this corner is locked and almost inaccessible to the public, i.e. a secret corner that we spent a long time to find its entry. So I am interested in the function of this corner. For the lower corner, since it is made by concrete and brick which we cannot see through, we don’t even measure the thickness of the walls, no mention the structure between the walls, which is interesting to me. I estimated the thickness of the wall through its spatial relation to other two walls. And then I referred to the construction handbook to pick up the proper size of CMU and the brick. At last, I added water-proof, insulation, and fastens between CMU and brick, I also tried to guess how it supports the roof. I enjoyed this process.
