See You in Newbern

Interested in finding out what’s going on at Rural Studio? While we host events throughout the year, the highlights are our Halloween Review and Pumpkin Carve, Christmas Soup Roast, and our early summer Graduation, the Pig Roast. These events give us a chance to celebrate our students’ work, from building chairs, to building houses, and to hear from some of our graduates, our expert consultants, and our many annual visitors. And don’t miss our faculty when they travel around the globe presenting our building projects and research!
