Knot was a bi-weekly student publication and a grant-funded research experiment in print and digital media. Knot was designed, edited, and produced by Scott Deisher, Laura Devine, and Ali AlYousefi with faculty advisor Professor John McMorrough. In Fall 2017 it was supported by the Architecture Student Research Grant, and in Winter 2018 was supported by the Architecture Program, Taubman College.

Halfway through the year of the publication, we were asked to produce and present an exhibition for the project in the Taubman College Gallery. We ordered vinyl lettering for the walls and arranged printed issues of the publication up to that point on the gallery walls. We presented the work to the students and faculty of the school of architecture.
