Riots not in the plans

Though Campus Day tour
guides may tell incoming
freshmen and their parents
colorful stories about how
the Fleming Administration
Building was built to be riot
proof, history books tell a dif-
ferent - and more accurate .-
story.
Opened in August 1968,
the Fleming Administratioo
Building replaced what is now
the LSA Building as the office
of the University's top admin-
istrators and officials. And
while protests on campus have
a history of targeting some
of the University's top lead-
ers, including the University's
ninth president Robben Flem-
ing, for whom the building is
named, the building was not
built to be "riot proof."
Both the timeline for the
building's construction and

the building's blueprints and
design plans indicate that
there are other reasons for the
building's eye-catching fagade.
Although the University's
most notable protests began in
the late 1960s, with the Flem-
ing building bid out in 1966
and completed in 1969, the
building's design was actually
conceptualized in the early
1960s long before the campus
protests.
But for many, the build-
log's design, with its unique-
ly-placed, primarily long and
narrow windows, still suggests
that the building's designer
may have planned to make the
building as secure as possible.
However, in the plans he
presented to the University's
Board of Regents, architect
Alden B. Dow, famous for his
cutting-edge designs, intended

to meet specifications of Uni-
versity leaders while preserv-
log the aesthetic appeal for
which he was known.
to a 2007 interview with
The Michigan Daily, Julia
Truettner, then a campus
planning project manager, said
the rumors about the build-
log's riot-proof design greatly
offended Dow, who designed
the building in his signature
"composed order" design style.
Treuttner said the narrow
window design was also meant
to make the building more
energy efficient than its pre-
decessor - the LSA Admin-
istration Building, which has
large windows that overheated
the then-non-air conditioned
building in the summer and
left the building drafty during
cold winters.
