But its focus on student involvement in realizing the house is also worth noting. The project leader, <a href="http://www.bbm-architects.co.uk/" target="_blank">BBM Architects</a>' Director and University of Brighton Senior Lecturer Duncan Baker-Brown, collaborated with a total of 253 undergraduate students, apprentices, and volunteers in the designing and constructing of the Waste House. As students experimented with new applications for these everyday materials, they also learned that it doesn't just have to end up in a landfill.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/62813689/showcase-villa-solaire-by-jka-fuga ShowCase: Villa Solaire by JKA + FUGA Archinect 2012-12-06T11:53:00-05:00 >2012-12-13T23:00:03-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/qb/qbo8nqs0tdsjdnis.jpg" width="514" height="411" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/1518/showcase" target="_blank"><strong>ShowCase </strong></a>is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="http://archinect.com/about/contact.php" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>.</em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/61313613/showcase-house-yagiyama-by-kazuya-saito-architects ShowCase: House Yagiyama by Kazuya Saito Architects Archinect 2012-11-13T13:20:00-05:00 >2012-12-03T03:43:39-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/n0/n0l2bcawern6tcs4.jpg" width="514" height="355" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/1518/showcase" target="_blank"><strong>ShowCase</strong></a> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="http://archinect.com/about/contact.php" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>.</em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/47317600/showcase-summer-house-in-southern-burgenland ShowCase: Summer House in Southern Burgenland Archinect 2012-05-07T10:13:00-04:00 >2012-06-27T01:20:43-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/26/26tnx4w0ju2lyx57.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>ShowCase</strong> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="http://archinect.com/about/contact.php" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>. </em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/33926030/showcase-shou-sugi-ban-maarn ShowCase: Shou Sugi Ban Maarn Archinect 2012-01-09T16:30:00-05:00 >2013-11-18T17:31:20-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/gj/gjxniqwk2o5farwp.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>ShowCase</strong> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="http://archinect.com/about/contact.php" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>. </em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/15879855/showcase-house-in-geumsan ShowCase: House in Geumsan Archinect 2011-08-05T14:59:00-04:00 >2013-01-09T19:18:11-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/5z/5zzvisf98xi5v9r9.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>ShowCase</strong> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p> <p> <em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features - if you would like to suggest a project, <a href="http://archinect.com/about/contact.php" target="_blank">please send us a message</a>. </em></p>
