The Architecture class from Kansas State University has been working diligently on a project they hope will be of great benefit to the community. They have spent the semester designing affordable, sustainable homes – the plans for which will be available to people who are rebuilding. These architectural plans will be available both in booklet form and on CD.
The students, along with Professor Gary Coates, will return to town on Sunday, December 14, to present the final models and plans to the community.Previously, the class had spent an afternoon in October showing drafts of proposed homes and garnering feedback from local residents. They wanted to be sure to incorporate people’s comments and concerns when they went “back to the drawing board” and honed their models.
These students have taken the feedback they received in October and are coming to town with their new plans. They are eager to show the community their final designs, and look forward to meeting with people to share their gift.
For residents who want to meet with the students on Sunday afternoon at the 5.4.7 Arts Center, please call the GreenTown office (620-723-2790) and we’ll get you an appointment between 3:30 and 5:00 so you can getan individual meeting.The KSU models will be on display from Sunday through Friday, December 19 – so if you just want to take a look, you can drop by anytime during that week when the Center is open.
