    Design/Build at the University of Miami School of Architecture

    The Design/Build studio has been developed and led by Prof. Rocco Ceo, and the Billy E. Miller Design-Build Visiting Critic Jim Adamson.  Over the past 5 years the studio has created projects for community use, such as non-profit groups and the state park system.  This year's project is staying closer to home.  Ceo is leading a group of undergraduates and graduate students in a transportable coffee kiosk that will sit in the School of Architecture's courtyard.  Although the campus of the architecture school has a great view of the University's lake, it is quite distance from most dinning halls and food court options. The kiosk would be managed by students and serve coffee and drinks throughout the course of the semesters.  The kiosk will also be mobile in case it needs to relocate or be stored away.  With only 5 weeks left in the semester, it is now crunch time for these design builders and we hope to bring you some more updates soon.

    Below is a video of one of the past projects: An Eco-Tent designed for Everglades National Park.  This prototype is currently in use at the park now.

About this Blog

This blog gives a sneak peak into the architecture world at the University of Miami. What began as an experiment following one group of incoming graduate students through their first semester of design, has morphed into a window of the school of architecture through this professor's eyes. I will try to post as often as possible.
