studio 8o4: Mod 4_07

Studio 804 is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, design/build program at the University of Kansas School of Architecture and Urban Design focused on the creation of community based architecture.

jump over to dan rockhill's website for the design/build course studio 804 in Lawrence, ks. the progress report of mod 4_[Core] is at the half way point, and marks the final warehouse touches before it gets delivered to the site.

we try keep an eye on these guys every year, since they usually end up gaining recognition for each project they turn out. last year's modular3 house won 3 awards, including the "home of the year" award from architecture magazine [now architect].

if you're interested in purchasing something more tangible on the work of studio 804, there is an annual publication entitled schemata, which retails for about $14 per issue at the online prairie avenue bookshop.

Sorry - bad link in last comment. Watch out for Mark issue #8 due out at the end of May - I've got a full write up on Studio 804 and an interview with Rockhill.
While I'm here, could you please update your link to PartIV to www.partiv.com.

very sleek. looks like Rockhill's students are breaking out of their sensei's techno-looking shell. Each year the house seems to get more and more refined.
