Rural Studios, a Double Posting

Rural Studios. One of my favourite architectural groups which i often refer to  for their spirit and motivations rooted deeply in community involvement, recycling and hands on learning. Architecture students often need to be reminded of such things when we’re bombarded with all that corporate architectural nonsense we see these days.

The mission of the Rural Studio is to enable each participating student to cross the threshold of misconceived opinions to create/design/build and to allow students to put their educational values to work as citizens of a community. The Rural Studio seeks solutions to the needs of the community within the community’s own context, not from outside it. Abstract ideas based upon knowledge and study are transformed into workable solutions forged by real human contact, personal realization, and a gained appreciation for the culture.
