Architecture students utilize new technology & old materials

March 17, 2010

Architecture and Engineering Technologies students embarked on a recycling project that found them utilizing new technology and old materials.

After individually designing household items from recycled material, they were paired up to share ideas online and collaborate with their partners to merge their designs into one. Their next step was to actually build the items into functioning pieces of furniture – or, according to one student – functioning pieces of artwork.
