PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Eda U. Gerstacker Grove is a renovation of an underutilized campus quad at the heart of the University of Michigan’s North Campus, home to the Colleges of Engineering, Art, and Architecture.

The Grove is a lush and active space that can accommodate a range of rotating events and everyday activities. It was conceived as a flexible green quad, with clearings in an elegant grove that can host larger-scale activities like musical and arts performances, student and alumni events, and casual play or recreation.

Infiltration gardens planted with baldcypress and ferns collect rainwater on site while a weather station reads rainfall, temperature, and other data to illuminate over 100 acrylic rods with vibrant LEDs in response to daily conditions.
