great view, hardwood throughout

This project was designed as a way for beginning architecture students to design and build real houses, for real residents, in the style of real architects. Students design the house for a specific type of bird, bat or owl, keeping in mind the bird’s favored environment, immediate nesting habitat, size, number of family members and patterns of use, the sorts of issues architects consider when building for humans. The creations are shown at the Plains Art Museum, and awards are given in various categories.
