Studio 804 is a design and building program offered at the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Design. They're focused on what they call community based architecture. Essentially the students are designing and building low income and affordable housing, while challenging the status quo of architecture. They build every aspect of the house minus electric, plumbing, heating and air. All design and construction is carried out by the students in a compressed period of 5 months; the results are really wonderful. The students are getting hands on experience while offering something useful and thoughtful to their community in Lawrence, Kansas.
