Project Lead the Way: Indianapolis

Saturday, February 16
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
CAP: Indy Connector @ The Platform. (Lunch provided)

Tiny Homes + Community

Tiny homes have become an architectural phenomenon popping up across the country’s urban, suburban, and rural landscapes. While these small, individual structures have captured our attention, we need to think though how they can be utilized in supporting a community. In this design/build session, we will explore the latest trend of tiny homes and what they can provide as well as imagining what is necessary to create a community with such a housing type. For the first part of the session, students will design their individual tiny home units with their teams based on their given site scenario, and then later in the session, they will build models of their larger, assembled communities. For questions and registrations, contact Lori Pence at lpence@bsu.edu or 765-285-5879.
