The Neighborhood Design Build Studio invites you to the ribbon cutting celebration for this years project, the World Cultural Kitchen for the UW Farm, at the Center for Urban Horticulture. The students have designed and built a circular trellis topped by three roofed areas. The finished project will be used for cooking and farming demos by the UW Farm, celebrations that are hosted at the Center for Urban Horticulture, and as a unique meeting place for visitors to the Union Bay Nature area. The studio is a consensus based group project, working this year with 8 graduate and 8 undergraduate architecture students (2 of which are construction management double majors) to create a beautiful and durable structure to meet the needs of the client. After refining a loose program, the class creates a schematic design presentation to the client, develops a construction document set and budget, and then prefabricates the building elements in studio and installs the final design on site. The ribbon cutting celebrates the hard work and creative solutions to the challenges that have emerged along the way.
