Experience the House

The house is the result of a unique collaboration between academia, corporate partners, fabricators, material suppliers and practitioners. Built by undergraduate and graduate students, the project links research, teaching and outreach in an experience that challenges conventional practice and stimulates new considerations for residential living.
