Check out these urban farm buildings we spotted on Inhabitat that were designed and built by students from the University of Colorado Denver. The new buildings utilize mostly salvaged materials to create functional, and quite elegant, additions to the working farm. As part the Design Build Program at the University, and under the guidance of the principals of Studio H:T, the students created a Learning Cube and a Dairy House.
More images and more about the students’ work after the break.
The Learning Cube, a simple framed structure, is a public gathering shelter with infill in the form of shipping pallets. The Dairy House uses stones, iron and wood to create a new milking shed complete with a pen and milking platform. On the exterior, gabion steel boxes hold the demolished concrete.
Both structures, although small in physical size, make a bold statement about the efforts of incorporating sustainability as part of the FEED Denver program. Kudos to the students – we love their work!
