University of Michigan

Ann Arbor, Michigan



Michigan is the nation’s leading university for research spending, which currently totals $1.31 billion, and is home to Archolab, an architectural-research collaborative. Funding enables Archolab and Burnside Farm in Detroit’s Banglatown neighborhood to collaborate on Afterhouse, a pilot project to transform a blighted home into a passive solar subterranean greenhouse for year-round food production and community engagement.
