Morrisette Campus’s housing pods will gain a new bathhouse, which will offer showers, toilets, laundry, dining, and cooking space for an expected 16-person cohort of 3rd-year students. The Studio continues to research the potential of mass timber as both a construction material and a more sustainable and appropriate local way to build. Working, once again, directly with Kiel Moe, the 5th-years have been challenged to build a functional, dignified, and beautiful bathroom facility out of wood, while dealing with the associated need for the management of water, humidity, and ventilation.
