The Faculty History Project documents faculty members who have been associated with the University of Michigan since 1837. Key in this effort is to celebrate the intellectual life of the University. This Faculty History Website is intended as a component of the effort to document the extraordinary academic achievements of Michigan’s faculty in building and sustaining one of the world’s great universities. It provides access to a comprehensive database of information concerning the thousands of faculty members who have served the University of Michigan.

Rosalyne Shieh is an architect. Her collaborative practice, SCHAUM/SHIEH, is based in New York City and Houston, TX. Ms. Shieh’s interests extend between architecture and the city; SCHAUM/SHIEH’s speculative project, Sponge Urbanism, projected an urban transformation of a neighborhood in Detroit, a fragment of which was built as a prototype and exhibited at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. Her current work includes institutional, commercial, and residential projects. Ms. Shieh trained in the offices of Abalos&Herreros in Madrid, ARO, and Stan Allen Architect in New York City. She has taught design and history/theory courses at the University of Michigan (where she was the 2009-2010 Taubman Fellow), Pratt Institute, and the Cooper Union. Ms. Shieh is licensed in the state of New York.
