The Michigan Union received a 2021 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Illumination Merit Award!


Located in the heart of Ann Arbor on the University of Michigan campus, the Michigan Union is an iconic building, rich in Michigan tradition and history. The original building was designed in 1919 with additions in 1930’s and 50’s. The design team of IDS, Workshop Architect and Hartman Cox along with the dedicated Students of the Michigan Union Board of Representatives, Building a Better Michigan and others spent many hours developing a concept with a focus on transforming and restoring the Union to serve the needs of students better while maintaining the historic nature of the building. The Michigan Union houses study and meeting spaces, six eateries, shops and student services. The Union is home to the IdeaHub, a collaborative space designed to support the University of Michigan’s over 1500 student organizations.
