Help Wanted

I'm doing a planning thesis on the changing conditions of student housing in Ann Arbor ~1920 to ~2000 and I'm looking for some houses/apartments to document. If you live somewhere on the OWS or the student neighborhood south of Central Campus and think your house is interesting, let me know. My objective is to examine how these structures differed in their spatial arrangements and their uses when occupied by owners vs. students/renters, and when that change occured. It would take about an hour to take some basic measurements of your house and rooms and poke around in your closets and basement, taking pictures all the while. Sound interesting? Let me know lwinlingATumichDOTedu.

Dude, if you're looking for atypical, include Arbor Vitae. Originally a dance hall and housing since the early 80s...
