Pod Design Fragments

 


Exploring Principles of Sustainability and
Environmental Responsibility in Design

These projects, under the direction of Professor Lyle Culver, applied ideas relating to sustainability in the design of an architectural “fragment” displayed at the Learning Innovations Golden Apple Grant exhibit “The Wall” from March 2, 2005 to March 30, 2005. Exhibited on the Wolfson and Kendall Campuses of Miami Dade College.

All projects were made from recycled materials and cost less than $60 to construct.
