This is not an unusual struggle in architecture schools, particularly in the context of a research university. This perceived tension between design and research is indicative of age-old anxieties within the architecture field to understand its nature as an "applied art." Design can be a purely creative activity not unlike creative practices in music and art. In other cases, design can be a purely problem solving activity, not unlike research in engineering and industrial production.</p><p>In its sixth year, University of Michigan Taubman College's Research Through Making (RTM) Program provides seed funding for faculty research, worked on by faculty, students and interdisciplinary experts.

In this installation, the city is seen as a complex system whose complexity increases constantly due to the intensified inter-connectivity of its components and continuously emerging new parameters. This dynamic approach to urban planning demands a shift from linear cause-and-effect thinking that attempts to offer fixed solutions to a problem, to employing new tools that work with feedback loops, taking a vast number of parameters into account to arrive at possible future scenarios that don't predict but rather serve to orient the future.</p><p>The installation proposes energy as a critical, new parameter for urban planning of the 21st century, a catalyst for a new city morphology, a major paradigm shift similar to the impact the automobile had o...</p> Urban Development Now kbretzius 2015-02-25T08:58:52-05:00 >2015-02-25T08:58:52-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="289" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The 2nd Annual Urban Development Now symposium explores the relationship&nbsp;between urban development and capital, and the twin roles of innovative&nbsp;design and innovative finance in transforming urban neighborhoods into&nbsp;thriving communities.
