  • Working on a collaborative interdiscipliary urban design scale project, as a senior student thesis, had never been attempted at the UofM College of Architecture and Design.  Shown here in 1965 are the notorious trouble makers, who not only broke the barriers, but also raised the ruckus amongst the student body to put down an attempt by certain IIT-trained faculty to transform the program into a Miesian Bauhaus.  From left to right, Walter Brown, Dennis Holloway, the 3D Motion Grid City model, and Peter Forbes.

  • In 2003 the UofM team re-united to propose a 3D Motion Grid City for the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competiton.
  • The Harvard team developed this graph (Hafner & Wilson) in which urban density is related to popultion to support an urban facility.  The distance and minutes of walking time to various facilites is shown.
