PRADE Loves the Chiljun

Sometimes it is really refreshing to see the work of architechture students (or any type of students for that matter) before they become jaded, cynical, or materialistic.

The Architect's Newspaper must think so too. They are featuring student work from 13 different Tri-State area architecture schools. It's always encouraging to hear the thoughts and ideas of students who's idealism has not yet been defeated or muted by obstacles that real life presents. I hope this isn't the last we hear from any of these students.

One of my favorites is this take on migrant larborer housing from Syracuse students Elizabeth Kamell and Ivan Rupnik. The design features a pullout bar-b-q and patio to foster community interaction, a rooftop greenhouse to save money by home growing food, and increased privacy for the living quarters (something often missing in trailer parks).

Swamped at work today - so this will be the only post. But take some time and check out the work of these talented students, and maybe check out some of this week's PRADE coverage you might have missed and I'll see you back on Monday.

Via Land + Living.
