Ten teams of freshmen architecture students are designing and constructing small structures to be located on a snowshoeing/walking trail in Silo City, along the Buffalo River. The students have been exploring material joinery and developing unique structural systems that create space. These systems invite the body and respond to varied conditions that exist within this unique, historic site. The semester allows for a more direct, hands-on experience where students learn the interrelated processes of design and construction.
