Description

This is a time-lapse project I created during my time at UTV as a Graduate Student Assistant. The project documents the restoration of the reflecting pool and public area originally designed by Architect Minoru Yamasaki. While Yamasaki designed many Mid-Century Modern structures both internationally and in Michigan, he is probably best known for the design of the World Trade Center. It is one of the first reflecting pool concepts incorporated into Yama's projects and one of the few left. In November 2014, the National Trust for Historic Preservation awarded Wayne State University, and co-reciepents Quinn Evans Architects, McCarthy & Smith and Becket & Raeder their Preservation Award for this project.
