SCALA Landscape Seminar: 1:1 The Rural Studio Way by Tom Reutlinger

  • SCALA Aug 2019 Tom Reutlinger

Unitec's School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture invites you to bring your lunch and attend this free public seminar.

The Rural Studio has celebrated its 25th year in its ongoing mission to provide sustainable solutions for housing affordability and quality across the various communities of Hale County, Alabama. What does reaching this milestone mean for the student-driven design and build program, and what exactly have they accomplished in this quarter century?

Get to know the story, and a behind-the-scenes look into Auburn University’s Rural Studio as Tom discusses his experience there as Unitec School of Architecture’s first student to attend the world-renowned program. As a developing opportunity for Unitec students emerges, share a discussion with Tom about the experience they can expect, what access to this education means for our students and how it can be applied to our own built environment, and the future of Unitec’s relationship with the Rural Studio.
