The A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education is an educational complex devoted to creativity. It houses a learning community, focused on art and design, extending from middle school through graduate school and beyond into the professional realm. This community will be complemented by other for-profit and not-for-profit organizations that drive innovation and economic development.
The Taubman Center is the cornerstone for commerce and culture in the New Center area. The College doubled the size of its campus when it opened the doors of the A. Alfred Taubman Center in September 2009. Since then, the Taubman Center enables the College to make profound impact on students, faculty, surrounding businesses and Detroit’s creative community.
There is nothing like it anywhere in the world.
