Video: Re-Building Greensburg

A few months ago we featured Studio 804′s Sustainable Prototype a collaborate project between students from the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Planning and the 5.4.7 Arts Center in GreensburgKansas.  The construction and delivery of the Sustainable Prototype was provided to the 5.4.7 Arts Center on the one year anniversary of the tornado that devastated GreensburgKansas. Although the building was developed for the long term use by the Arts Center, its immediate use was as the first completed public facility serving as a beacon for the community and its ambitious rebuilding efforts.  The Sustainable Prototype became the first LEED Platinum building in the state of Kansas, as well as the first designed and built by students.

Follow the break for four videos featuring Studio 804′s process from initial design, construction, delivery and public open house of the Sustainable Prototype.
